rafters appearing white, not fir

Recommended Posts

Hi,

When I generate a roof frame, the rafters appear as a white material, even though my rafter default is set to fir framing.  I can't seem to globally select them to change them to fir, the material painter just does one at a time.  There are hundreds....    How do I globally select and change material?  I tried locking all layers but rafters and selecting them all, but I didn't have the option to change material.

 

thx

If you do not have a soffit,  the rafters assume the color of your fascia.

 

Put a soffit at your eaves and I would bet your rafters will be a fir framing material.

Wow, not something I would have found in a million years!  You the man!

I got excited too soon.  Actually, soffits were checked :-(.  I tried it with checked and unchecked, rebuilding each time, didn't change anything.  Oddly, a few of the roofs on the house do appear as wood, even though they seem to have identical settings to the roofs that appear white

Are any of the rafters designed to be exposed rafter tails? Just because you have soffitt checked doesn't mean its there. What are your settings?
