Selection in Keyshot: Is it me or is it a PITA?

 

I have an assembly with much the same parts in different subassembly's. All these identical parts should receive the same material, so I want to add them all in the same group.

Now I manualy add the parts to a group "Metal - paint".

When I try to search for all these parts in the scene - search box I get no result. Is there a (hidden?) function "select identical part" in Keyshot?

Joris, this question is best asked in the Keyshot forum I guess.

 

My limited experience is that you can

-select one part and 'rbm/select parts w material'

-part by part select the parts in the Scene/Models list.

Or select them by 'search' and enter a name.

 

Good luck!

Hi @Joris

 

 

got to the material tab click on that specific material and RMB "Select all parts with material"

 

This is avaialable at least from Keyshot 6 on but Ithink even longer

@Joris You should also look into material template functionality if you haven't already.  

 

The parts from SE come in with their face style appended after the name therefore I have a few rules e.g. for anything named *RAL6018* (my SE face style name, with asterix wildcards each side) apply RAL6018 material (a custom keyshot material I've made, but could be anything).

 

This way you can instantly apply Keyshot materials very quickly based off you SE styles, so minimises the item by item messing around with styles.
