Hi, I'm having trouble creating a mesh with multiple surface types. ie - asphalt, grass, concrete. I have the mesh created and I'm using solid element operations to subtract with an upward extrusion from the slabs of the different grass and pavement surfaces. This process works well when I'm only using two surface materials, but I can't figure out how make it work with more than that. Does anyone know how to do this?
A single mesh can't have more than one surface material.
Unless you use the SEO work-around inheriting the surface material of the operator.

Otherwise you will have to split the single mesh into multiple meshes.
