In V5 i cant find any way to easily restore an object to its default render material.
In V6 the same problem - if i go to properties for a selected object, i am presented with several options, but not one of them is simply "restore default material"
There is a “use a new blank material” option, which without altering it looks “default”, but if i assign to to an object, then another, i get all this drama about how its shared by other objects etc.
Surely this (restore default material) should just be the first and simplest option? Why? Because when i’ve messed up a material editing it and fooling around, or worse, when ive created a material and edited it in a plug-in renderer, and i no longer want it in a new model which is composed of parts of a previous model, and the material renders like rubbish in the actual rhino renderer, i want to be able to just dump it and get on with modelling.
So ideally, select objects, look at properties>material>restore default. Done.
