Hi

I have a large model and I want to globally replace all materials with a single material.

Any way to do this?

TIA

So you basically want to make the whole building something like "foam white" or "balsa wood"?

Hi Adri,
save the entire model as an object and then apply a single material to the object. Don't forget to uncheck the "Use object material" tickbox.
Hope this helps.

If you wanted to keep your model as ArchiCAD elements, you may be able to gain something from this Global Material Change Tip.

Cheers,
