    Here's how to change existing materials to custom materials... so easy.

    It's important to note that all materials in KeyShot are scientifically accurate materials with properties added to be the most realistic possible.

    Also, if you're looking for more settings on your materials, you can select the 'Advanced' Material Type in the pulldown, located next to the material thumbnail in the Materials options.

    When you download keyshot, all the current available materials are included.

    So when you install keyshot, the materials are there.

    KeyShot 3 comes with over 700 materials. More will be added in the near future. You can download KeyShot 3 with animation here:

    Let me know if you have any questions on materials. You can create your own custom materials starting from one of the others.

    Great to see a nice Keyshot tutorial on GrabCAD
    I hope many more will follow as a lot of GrabCAD users
    have Keyshot as there renders software of choice.

    Just a question Josh and maybe an idea here -
    would it not be great to have some of the Keyshot
    team to come over from time to time to GrabCAD
    and renders some of the models in the library
    just like Bunkspeed so I think Bunkspeed do a great
    job with GrabCAD but Keyshot seems to be the main
    renders software for us on GrabCAD and it would be great
    to have the Keyshot professionals have renders put up.
    It would also be great advertisement for Keyshot here on

    Hi, these tutorials are great! Thanx!

    Can you please explain how to render a white glossy plastic with the green LED behind. The plastic is 1mm thick and the green light from the LED is coming through the plastic. I have tried many ways, but can't get it to work.

    These are fantastic! I have learned a lot from your tutorial.
    I do have a question though. In SolidEdge I have a number of items that are all the same, for example water filters. As water passes from one to another it becomes clearer in real life. When I try to apply a color to any on of the items they all change color. Is there a trick to only change the color on one of the items?
