That option is meant to load materials that have been stored as an .rmtl file. If you save Maxwell materials in a Rhino Material Library file, they can be loaded again from that menu and drag and dropped into Rhino.
You can import MXM materials in the same way as on Windows:
- You can use the second button of the Materials toolbar (the same three toolbars should be available on Mac). If you left-click on the button the materials are imported as custom (embedded and editable from inside Rhino); if you right-click on the same button, they are imported as referenced (it's quicker, but they have to be edited from the MXED or embedded).
- You can use the Maxwell_AddMaterial command and then choose the option Import_as_Custom or Import_as_Referenced.
I hope this helps.
In any case, we'll check with the McNeel people to see if our material format could be added to the + > import from material library function. We tried the drag and drop method before without luck.
