Can I 'collapse' materials?

Not sure if I have this right but I think I applied an appearance and not material. They are 2 different things in solidworks?

I'll have to get my head around it. Is there a way to convert the appearance into the material?





I'm new to Solidworks but not to 3D software and i'm having an issue that I can't seem to resolve.


I've imported a .step file and applied materials and saved as a solidworks file. When I import this into Cinema 4D the components have 2 materials. They have the materials I've added and the original base colour is listed as a material. My question is this:


Is it possible to 'merge/collapse' the material state so that it only has the materials that i've added? I can remove the top component but not the bottom.


Any help here would be really appresciated guys.
