Default Drywall Color

Recommended Posts

I want to change my default color to a Benjamin Moore color 2111-70. I down loaded it to my library but can not change the default color to it.

I opened my interior wall. Selected the interior wall layer. Clicked on material. Opened the library.

I did that but it changes the material name to the color not the pattern. Or do i just rename the mater Drywall and the color number

You can copy the default Drywall material and change its color. Then use that in the wall definition.

But you cant grab a library color for the drywall. OK so Chief just responded and said that was a difficult task. I will let you know. I set up a meeting

I did a few extra things that are not necessary. Try to understand the process and not just copy the steps.

For colors Chief doesn't let you apply easily like this you can just use the BM RGB numbers ( or Hex on Mac too) from their Website

( or any manufacturer eg SW instead) and put them into the Color Box manually

 or even color pick them from a wall you already changed manually to the desired color within Chief.

Then save it to your Library for later use....

 

This is a website that has this info too .....they are selling paint but the info needed is there too....https://encycolorpedia.com/e7e5e0
