Can't seem to impliment colors on surfaces

Relatively new to the rendering side of Rhino 5 and I can’t seem to get individual solids to display some color other than white. I’ve tried assigning color by object and by layer and just can’t seem to get anything other than white. Any help is greatly appreciated.


Hi Mike - are you asking about rendering colors or normal viewport display colors? If rendering then you need to mess with materials. If normal display colors, then that follows the layer color by default but can be set per object in Properties.

Any luck?
