Automatic material template not adding all parts/materials
« on: October 12, 2022, 10:28:42 am »
Hi everbody,

I am really struggling with the material templates.
My company has many similar products which only partly differentiate from each other so material templates would be perfect to allocate like 90% of all material with one click.
Though, it is not really working on my end.

If I add an automatic material template based on parts, there will be many parts missing. They just do not appear. If I add them manually, it works superb.
The same happens with templates based on materials which is another big problem as the same part in different cad models have a different original material name so an allocation via material is almost impossible.

Manual templates would be a way out but our products have way more than 100 different parts and creating the templates would probably take more time instead of just adding the same material to the same part again and again.

Do you have any idea what the problem could be here?
I am on Keyshot 10.

Thanks for your help, really appreciated!
