    Color and material eye dropper problem

    I have never done what you describe either but I am the one with "No Problem" and you are, perhaps you have been, in the past just lucky.

    Color and material eye dropper problem

    Sounds like to me you are replacing the material, one with another instead of using a color to "Blend with Material" on the "Texture Tab" of the "Define Material Dialog", you must be doing something else. DJP

    Laser Scanned As Built Drawings

    I got good results from Matterport material and found it to be reasonably accurate, of course their person creating the Matterport materiial needs to be competent in doing their job as well, nothing is a "sure thing" unless people see that it is. DJP
