Create Object from Grasshopper with Multiple Surface Attributes


I want to create Archicad objects using Grasshopper, most of which would contain multiple surface attributes within the object itself (like a chair with metal legs and a fabric seat). So far, the only way I've been able to figure out how to get this to work is to create individual morphs using Grasshopper/Archicad, apply surface properties to those morphs in Archicad, and then merge all of those morphs into a single Archicad object.


Is there a way to do this without converting all of these geometries to morphs first? I'd also be happy with creating the object in Grasshopper, then exploding the 3D object into pieces to apply surface properties, then wrapping back up into an object, except I can't figure out how to explode that 3D object.
