I have a problem I've been working on for around 4 hours now, and I need help.....

I need a golf bag. With clubs if possible, but I can add them later if necessary.

I have found a bag in sketchup 3D warehouse - golfovĂ˝ bag. It's the only decent one I can find.

I can get it into Muvizu, but there are 100's of colours so they can't all be displayed.

I have tried painting all the faces the same colour but I can't seem to reduce the number of colours that come up in Muvizu.

I suspect I need to clear things out in the .ase using notepad, but I really don't know what I'm doing.

Any suggestions ??

In SU, after you paint all the faces the same colour, you should go to :

Display/Animation/settings/Statistics/clean the unused items

I hope it's the solution

Thanks gimmick, but sadly not.

Interestingly although my object imports totally pink, the first 40 colours (which is what I can see) are not pink, but greys and whites....

Hi Berty

I'm just hazarding a guess here, but it does sound as though there are some faces reversed in there somewhere. Now to reduce those colours...have you exploded the model so that it is one complete model before colouring?

Sketchucation.com have some free material plugins for SketchUp which will remove all materials from either model or selection of model. I use these alot. Once you have exploded a model and then recoloured it...black on the inside(reverse faces)...any colour you want on the outside..the colours should reduce.

In SU, you could also in the Materials list "In the model" delete one by one all materials used (right click then delete)

Each deleted material is replaced by standard white/grey face

so your model will have REALLY only one colour
