Creating Materials

You can also use built-in materials but if you want to make your custom materials then first you have to import the model to twinmotion where you want to create new materials. So after importing, you have to select a material from your model to create new material, you can do it with the help of material picker. Then you have to go down to the material editor and add new material. To do this you have to click on the material single or multi-button.

This will give you the list of all the materials that are inside the model and you can adjust any of that. To create a new material, click on the plus button. After that, you have to edit the new material. Go back to material single mode. If you want to rename the material then you have to click on the three dots and rename it. After that you will just see a white color ball, so you have to load an image file to give it a texture.

To do that, go to the more functions and you will get a color section. After clicking on more, you will see a lot of different things like texture. Click on texture and you will see options like copy or paste, open, click on open. This will open up a window where you can select a material. You can download materials from different websites.

After selecting the material, you have to drag the material to a place the model where you want to create a new material. After that, you can go to the metal panel to adjust all the things like scaling. You can also use the setting to get more options.


Applying Materials

After creating the materials it’s time to apply new materials. So first, you have to import the model. To apply materials easily, while importing choose the option keep the materials hierarchy. To apply different materials, you will find an option as an o’ sign, where you have to click and you will find different options like replace the material and apply to object.

So if you want to apply new material in the whole group, then you should replace the material or if you want to apply to individual objects, then you should use apply to object. Then you can use the material picker to enhance the new material and you can also change the texture and scale them.


Importing elements and models

If you want to import a normal file, then you can do it easily but if you want to import SketchUp model and elements, then first you have to set up your unit measure, go to preferences, settings, and unit system and select whether you have the metric or imperial unit. Then select import, geometry and open your file and select ok. If you encounter any material conflict, select use scene material and then okay and you will successfully import the model or the element.
