Most Efficient Way to Reapply Materials?


I often have to import sketchup models with textures and materials. I’m rendering these models with VRay, and unless I reapply the materials to the objects in the materials panel, they won’t appear in the VRay rendering… even though they appear in Rhino’s rendered display.

My question:

Is there an efficient way of reapplying materials?
Right now I’m having to select each material and select the objects it’s currently assigned to and then reapply the material. Some models have 50+ materials and this can be really time consuming.

Any ideas?


will sketchup export an obj with materials? If so you may try that- once in rhino save the .3dm file with textures and see if vray will pick them up.
