changing roofing material in X8

Recommended Posts

This may be a stupid question, but I cant seem to find how to change the roofing material in the upgraded program. When you I open the roof dialogue box and go to the materials tab, the only options are the fascia, soffit and ridge cap. Anyone know where I can find the roofing material change?

I think you can also use the spray can...using the DBX is probably the best method but the spray can works.

Yes, but you should also note that you can have as many layers as you want and set the thickness of each one.  IOW, it's now an assembly.

There it is!  Thank you - was just looking for - to change width for standing seam, so needed the DBX.

Having the layers is terrific.  Love it.  But setting the materials there is really sorta dumb.

AND, there's no default material for roofing any more either.

 

This is inconsistent.  Shouldn't be like this.  IMHO.

The default roofing material is in the same place in the Roof Defaults dbx.
