Can't find Surface anymore in properties

So I’m going into my properties window for a part that I inserted… and for some reason, I can’t find the Surface customization anymore, but when I go into an old game, it shows my previous parts having the Surface property customization. I’m confused why I can’t find it. Help pls.


Can you send a screenshot please?

Oh me too i don’t really know why.

Haven’t taken a screenshot before. I’m on pc, do you know what the keybind is?

I think it only shows up when you have changed one of the surfaces. Earlier today I was putting a surface on a part and when I spawned it in (All sides are smooth) the Surfaces section didn’t show up in Properties but as soon as I edited the one of the surfaces it showed up.

Before Editing Surfaces (No Surfaces Section)

After Editing Surfaces

(I used the baseplate because the studs wasn’t showing up on the part) ._.

Edit: (Got the studs to work because I forgot I had the material set to Smooth Plastic)


if you are on windows just search for ‘Snipping tool’ and press ‘New’ and select the place you want to take a picture of or just press ‘Printscreen’ on your keyboard


Alright im a noob at windows so just imagine that you inserted a fresh new part into studio and there is no more surface inputs or surface in the properties

how did you change the surface appearences tab because i cant find that either

You go to the Model Tab > Surfaces

(To the right of Color)


I believe it is the new Surface changes that Roblox made a week ago. They are now officially deprecated and unsupported.

The reasoning why can be seen on the source thread. It probably won’t be removed entirely, but you will need to go through a few hoops to make it work as usual. At that point I would opt to just use a decal or surface image.



Hi sorry to reopen this, but I can’t find the surface either, I read everything and I still cant find it?

Same! I can’t do seats without this surface tool.


it seems like a bug or they removed it from studio


In the command bar.:

directory.FrontSurface = Enum.SurfaceType.Studs


I’m as well, sorry to continue this topic, but sadly, Roblox has removed surfaces from the studio. Fortunately, there is still a way to get them using the Surface Tool (Surface Tool - Studs Are Back! - Roblox)


I do not have anything to the right of colour!!

Sorry to revive this topic, but if anyone is still wondering how to add surfaces, type this in the command bar and you will receive a part with surfaces

local part ="Part"); part.Parent = workspace;
