Using The Material Edit Tool to Transfer Colours in KD Max
Tutorial Difficulty: Beginner
Follow these simple steps to learn how to use the material edit tool to apply colours from cabinet to cabinet. This is perfect if you have a door profile in your design but can’t find the correct colour.
To begin select a door colour under the Global Style Settings. I have chosen a door colour with a door style. I am using door01_03 from the PureColor range.
Layout a cabinet from the library that is using the chosen door profile, I am using a base cabinet.
Navigate back to Settings > Global Style Settings and select a new Door colour. Click OK to confirm the changes.
Layout a second cabinet using the new door colour. This will be used to transfer the colour to the original cabinet.
Now navigate to Render > Material Edit to open the material editor tool. Now left-click the second cabinet that was placed (using the colour that will be applied to the other cabinet) to bring the information into the Material Edit tool.
Now click the Apply tick-box to begin applying the colour. To apply the colour simply left click on the desired door.
