Import the new version of your model and enable the "same coordinates as previous" option and the "retain materials" option.

thank you very much
could you describe the steps to follow to do that. I think we have a first
Export Keyshot has put the colors on the objects and then repeat with another export setting has
day and then import in the first; the second (with kepp material). Is this fair?

Yes, that's the idea.

Import the first model, paint it up with materials. Then import the new version of the model and enable "retain materials". You can also choose at this step whether to replace the current model with the new model, or add the new model to the scene with the old model so that you have both versions.

Yes indeed I suspected but accurate when it exports the model a new
Keyshot session opens so you need two separate files Bip

Yes, this doesn't work with the plugin. You'll need to import through the "import" button inside KeyShot.
