Wonderful thanks!

So we now have:
1."thin glass" shader which gets exported as "single face arch glass" and
2."arch glass" option on specular shader which gets exported as "arch glass" for volumes

Maybe you could explain in the GUI (no thickness required) or something.

.. :( PLEASE.. I know it sounds silly but...PLEASE revert default material to diffuse!
..or at least think of a way to change the shader type assigned to SU default material inside SkIndigo!

Updated build to fix problem when mesh uses multiple UV sets. (multiple UV sets are disabled for now.)

Why do you want diffuse to be the default?

Hi Ono!
..that's mostly because most of the time I usually use sketchup default material to represent the standard white wall plaster, so in my projects there are actually a lot of walls painted with that, that is NOT painted at all. Moreover, as far as I know, there is no way to adjust the Indigo material setting for sketchup's default material through skindigo, so to get a fast preview render I should fiddle directly in the Indigo GUI to covert that to diffuse. I know that really subtle reflections give a far much realistic look, but most of the times I prefer to spare some rendering time in spite of that. Only in very few occasions I tried to give a phong material to the white walls, and that is when I find useful to make a specific material and paint it where I need.

There is another reason: I teach Indigo and SkIndigo, and most of the times my students ask me why is that phong and not diffuse? :lol: Another thing that I used to teach is that - when working with Sketchup AND SkIndigo - to create a new SketchUp mat it is useful to start with the default sketchup material, so we have a new SkIndigo material with very basic settings, sort of a standard mat so-to-speak, a generic material setting just to start. Now it's not: even if I start with the simplest SketchUp mat, I have to open skindigo material editor and convert it to diffuse manually.

I always teach thinking: let's start from easy and then get to complex. The current preset forces the workflow back and forth, and for a beginner that is not good, according to me.

If we could adjust defaults, that would be great!
