Click the blue arrows to change the order of the materials.The order of materials in the Augment app will mirror the display in the Material panel. Each material with color options will be selectable in the “Change Color” mode. To enable the viewer to change the entire model’s color with one click (rather than changing each piece of the model separately), create a texture with the UV’s of your different objects on one map.

Right clicking on a material in the top Material sub-panel gives you the option to do the following:

  • Restore the original material
  • Change the material’s thumbnail (jpeg, png, bmp, gif, psd) that will appear in the app
