Hi!
Does anyone know if it's possible to set different colors on the interior side and exterior side of a wall so that this is affected in an exported mesh? I am using the ViaCAD architectural tools and exporting a room model to OBJ format. A ViaCAD cube can have different colors on each face, and the exported OBJ model will have different materials for each colored face. But for the wall meshes, each wall mesh can only have one material so I can't have one wallpaper material and one facade material despite the ViaCAD walls having different colors on the interior and exterior sides.

Is there a way to fix this in ViaCAD directly instead of having to redo the UV mapping in an external 3D program?

Thank you for reading.

You can use the Select Deep tool to change the inside wall color which is then exported as a mesh via OBJ.
