- [Instructor] So I want to add just a few finishing touches…to our pool table here.…I want to add a material to the playing surface…for that green felt…and then we'll import in some playing accessories…to complete the effect.…So, I think for this example…I want to work exclusively in the 3D.…So, what we can do is go to the View tab here…and there's a button here called Tab Views.…And if we click that, it'll just gather back together…all of the views into one large window…and as multiple tabs across the top of the screen.…
This will allow me to zoom in,…nice and close on the pool table…and have a look at the playing surface.…So now what I want to do is just kind of move my mouse…into the screen here…and locate the extrusion that makes up the playing surface…and select it.…If you go to the Properties pallet and scroll down…you will see that object has a Material.…Now that Material is currently set to By Category,…which is this sort of gray cardboard that we're seeing here.…Now if you want, you could click there,…
