You can override the Front, Bevel, Side and Back material options for a 3D shape layer in the CINEMA 4D renderer by twirling the layer open, clicking the Add button on the Contents group in the timeline panel, and navigating the flyout menu that appears.

However, by default, your entire extruded shape will pick up the the fill color. You are probably seeing the sides as black because they are not lit. You need to add lights to the scene that actually hit those pieces of geometry for them to appear as gray.

thanks for responding!!!
i've added all the contents into new group and changed the side color to all of it together.
the thing is that i had to cancel the "accept shadow" of the layer.

have a good one
