Treated sill plates with own material?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to set treated sill plates in the default different than the rest of the stud material so it shows automatically as treated material in 3D without having to paint all the plates in 3D?

I don't think you can do it directly as I believe the default plate material uses the default Framing material.

So.....what you could probably do is assign different materials to studs, roof framing members, floor and ceiling framing, etc, and leave only the plates to use the default Framing material. 

 

In this pic I have left only the plates to use the default Framing material (Color - Gold)

That's a really good solution Glenn.  Thank you!

Michael,

Yeah, it is the long way around, but should work.
