Best way to name sketchup materials for import

Recommended Posts

I have created a Washer/Dryer Pedestal in SketchUp and imported it into Chief. Everything worked fine, ecept it imported some crazy material items.

    Plywood Panel has an imported material called unnamed_model_SKP_Plywood_Panel

       I would like this to come in as Cabinet Base (the object name in SketchUp) and the material is not important as I could then change it in Chief.

       The new name would make it easier ti visualize and adjust the model in Chief.

   color_204_68_0 should be Top Rail....

 

Maybe I'm asking too much and maybe it cannot be done. The imported item works great (imported as Fixture (interior) ehn place against walls and such, turned correctly to have the front facing out. Tried importing as a cabinet, but chief added a countertop, backsplash etc....not needed for this object.

 

Attached is the SketchUp file...
