How to change material name in my model? I want to call it for example: door, wall.

There are a few ways you can do it. If you're using Maya you need to name the shading group, not the material. Otherwise you can adjust the name by editing the mtl file for an obj with a basic text editor.

That is assuming the OP is using Maya or OBJ :slight_smile:

even so with OBJ, im sure you have to edit the OBJ file in conjunction with the mtl as the geometry parts use the material name to identify what geometry belongs to what material etc.. but it would be best for them to understand how to name their materials in the 3D editor they are using then such edits are not needed.
