Cutting a wall to create 2 different materials

Recommended Posts

Hi, How do I cut a wall to allow 2 different materials to be on there. It's weird. I'm using the break line tool and nothing is happening. I am a student.

Sometimes the wall will rejoin. Copy the wall definition and give it another name so that the program won’t re-join it. 

That is, use the break wall tool to divide your wall up in plan view. 

 

Then click on one part of the wall and go to the wall definition.

 

Copy it and give it a different name.

 

Then it will stay disconnected and you can change the material to what you want.

Sorry, I stll can't figure out how to break it in plan mode.  I tried via an elevation and I still can't cut the wall. I'll keep trying. Thanks!

try material region...  

Be in camera view looking at the wall you want to change..

Build>wall>material region.  Draw a box.. thats your new material.  Change it to what you want, then shape it with the grips.  Read up on in, and there's vids..
