Vray material not able to aaply on OBJ block instances

It seems that V-Ray doesn’t apply a material to OBJ imported block instances. Rhino model block instances work perfectly fine.
But how do you apply a material to an OBJ block instance with V-Ray??

Hello - does BlockEdit let you do what you need? (i.e. apply the material to the mesh from within BlockEdit, or set the material assignment to ‘By Parent’ within BlockEdit.)


It says only 3dm files can be edited.

Yeah, so these are linked blocks - the only thing to try would be to embed the blocks, as far as I know. (BlockManager)


Oh okay. It would significantly make the file size heavy :confused:

I’ll do that.
