Material Libraries

Postby ntxdave » Fri Dec 22, 2017 6:44 am

Is there a way to restore the material libraries?

I accidentally changed a material (actually a couple I think) and I would like to restore them to the original materials. I also need to understand how to go about creating my own alternative to one of the standard materials without overwriting the original one. Also, can I make changes/new materials and save them with a model?

One last thing, if I set up a customized material for one object in my model, how do I apply that material to another object?

Are there some tutorials where I can go to learn how to do these things?

The application default materials are here:
C:\Program Files\SimLab\SimLab Composer 8\data\materials

The active materials used by the app and the user modified materials are here ... copy files from the defaults to here to restore:
C:\Users\cjd\AppData\Roaming\SimLab\SimLab Composer 8\data\materials

The paths may be a bit different on your system, but the basic info is that the default materials are in the application folder, and as far as I have seen, these are never overwritten. Only the materials in the Users data folder can be modified.

There is some discussion here about user modified materials:
