Foundation material texture

Recommended Posts

Hello.
I just created an account on this forum to ask how we can change the look of the foundation.
I mean the texture of the material. I would like something that looks like applied river stone.

Foundation walls are just like regular walls, just add a stone layer to the outside of the wall

Well, I used Adjust Material Definition (this was the information I needed) I navigated through my computer to the desired material (path) and I succeeded.

Thanks everyone.

So you changed a single layer foundation wall from having its texture as "concrete" to a stick-on-faux-stone texture?

 

Some of us might have added a 2" finish layer to the exterior of our concrete foundation wall, and given THAT 2" layer the river stone texture.

 

But with Chief, hey, it's flexible, and you can build it any way you want.

Thanks. The question is how to add 2" finish layer to the exterior of our concrete foundation wall or any type of wall? I can use panels for that?

You can also use the MATERIAL REGION tool and add it while in elevation mode. This tool gives you the ability to "shape" the stone around the terrain like the installers would have to do.

But MOST importantly, get some training.

 

As in . . .

Some

 

Training

 

At the Chief website, search for training videos that teach wall definition, videos that teach about material textures, and about the use of material regions on walls.

 

There are many training videos available   on YouTube, some produced by Chief, the rest privately

Thank you all.
In the end I managed to make a house that I am very proud of as if I had made it in reality.
For a beginner I say it's pretty good.
