Faded look

Recommended Posts

Hello again, 

I'm working on a drawing that is for a renovation job and I was wondering if it would be possible to have the new addition distinguished from the already existing part of the house by having the materials faded significantly.  I want to keep all the colors but just showing them at 50%.  I tried to copy materials and change the color but that doesn't have the right affect.  Thanks to whoever can help me out!!

Cover it with a poly box with white fill and set the transparency to 80 or so.

Many users will start with the As-Built by turning on only the layers they want visible from the as built, then create "CAD detail from view"  then change line colors to light grey, and block the CAD together. Change your CAD block layer to something you create like "as-builts or e-plan." then shift-paste(hold-position) that CAD block to the back drawing layer of your new plan. Then lock the as-built layer

Additionally I like my as-built wall types to have no framing with my new walls auto-generating framing

yes I did that for the floor plan but was hoping to have something available to distinguish the new from the old on the elevation views also with still keeping the colors for the exterior finishing but only having it reduced.

You can also have different patterns in the stucco or siding material, for new and existing walls. Try to copy whatever material you use and add a custom pattern to create a difference.
