Hi fasade23, there is only 1 built-in Glass material in Lumion with some settings that you can adjust. There is no way to create an entirely new Glass material.

Regarding the metal and alco panel materials, it would be helpful if you could provide some photos of what you are looking for. 'Metal' is a very broad category - brushed steel looks very different from aluminium for example.

- I mean some kind of common metal materials. I struggled to make stainless steel or metal materials are typically for use in interior etc. Also plastic materials. I mean here, whether in lumion can be set as a material like I said. (example: vray can create materials from the tools they provide) or there is a trick to make the material?
- I also had trouble making bump in lumion. when i edit the materials and make a bump, the other side becomes more intense. I tried tooling, the invisible bump it results. why?
I use SketchUp for modeling and mapping. I use the unit is meter. Unit what should I use to match the size setting lumion? so that the material match when set in lumion.

thank you.

Please check out the Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts thread for more information about what each material slider does (Search for 'Material sliders' on the following page):

Sorry, but I don't quite understand what you mean?

Are you using a blue/purple normalmap? Click here to see what they look like.

Meters are fine.

We have not heard from you yet, so you have been banned from accessing the forum on suspicion of using an illegal version of Lumion.

If you can prove that this is a mistake, please send your license details to info [at] act-3d.com.
