"We finally figured this out.  The problem is after using the Clipboard to Copy and paste objects that have NXT materials assigned to them the Material Table gets confused.  After the Copy and Paste, subsequent new materials are…"

"New development- my new problem is that I can't add materials to the model. I can't drag them from the list to the palette. This is the model I referenced above- I saved it in a new name and reopened it, and that sorted the wrong material…"

"Unfortunately I've just had the issue again. I did not have the debug command on, as I'd done it in the last model and forgotten to do it again. I turned it on as soon as I realised, but it was probably too late... It's now switching…"

"Time is definately a factor in this problem.  That is why it is so difficult to track down.  I have reports of working on the model to 3 hours or more, then it happens."

"Interesting that you left it open overnight! I've always started to have problems when I try to add new materials about a day after adding the original set. If time is a feature here could explain why reproducing the issue in new models is…"

"I tired running the FlamingoNXTDebugOptions command and it doesn't seem to make a difference. I just added a material to a file that had been open overnight and it shows the thumbnail in the control panel but when you click on or assign the…"

"Have you had a chance to set the variable in the newest build that will give you messages about the problem?  A couple replies above this one details the steps."

"For what It's worth I'm seeing the same issue with the 3-26 build in v4 and v5. It also happens when creating new materials. you can create the material as usual but if you try to edit or use it it comes up as the previous material."

"If I do this, rhino crashes after making a second material. If I don´t do this command, I cant make any new materials cause all the previous materials changes to something else.. Rhino 4, Win 7 32bit"

"I just released a new Flamingo NXT beta build.  We added a feature to try and track this problem with material switching.  Please download and install this build 43 from 3-26-2012.  Then follow these steps: Turn on the watch feature…"

"Someone mentioned 'double dragging' material into the pallet... This is a workaround that has been working for now. -drag in a new material (it will probably replace some other one without you knowing) -then drag in the same material a 2nd…"

"Erika - Normally if you drag the material from the material library into the material list a second time, and tell it to replace the existing material, then the problem fixes itself.  You can also save and open the model. Now, most people here…"

"Same issues here!  Drag a new material in and create new material both get messed up. Assign by layer and assign to selected also have the same poor results.  The Material Pallet shows one thing, but when you apply or edit the material…"

"Hi there, I am also having the same problem and wondering if the issues have been fixed or if there is anything I can do in the mean time as it is making my work day quite frustrating. Thanks!"

"I am having a similar problem. the trouble is when there are new materials added to model and if i make custom materials such as a wood texture would appear as wood in the preview but under properties it say it is brushed aluminum."

Jack Kelleher replied to Jack Kelleher's discussion Rendering Materials switching around
"New discovery- if I drag a material in and it takes on the wrong characteristics, and then I drag the same one in again, I am asked whether I want to replace the existing one. If I choose yes, the material then works. "
