Duplicate a material

All the materials can be duplicated either from the reference material database or from the user material database.

For any origin of the material (reference or user material database), the new material resulting from the duplication will be stored in the user material database.

Duplicate a material allows creating a new material from one already existing with another name. It is possible to modify (by editing it) the corresponding properties to personalize it.
