Vertical Siding

Recommended Posts

Hi all,  Vertical siding grooves only show in the Standard view format. How do I turn on the grooves in the other view formats. Design Dude

Hey Dude,

 

The standard view uses a texture and the 'vector' views use a pattern. Go to the pattern tab and find one that works for your siding.

My advice above blows. It's WAY too hard to find a pattern when vertical siding doesn't come with a pattern already spec'd. Please, someone tell me it's easier than this video shows.

 

Here's the right way to do it.

 

 

Here's the wrong way, but might be entertaining.

Larry,

 

You almost got there.

Open the Define Material dbx - easiest way is the rainbow tool.

On the General panel, select strip.

I think you got up to here correctly. 

 

Set Height to the board width (we will rotate pattern next).

Go to the Pattern panel and set Angle to 90deg. 

Done.

 

You only need to use the Pattern Source section for complicated patterns like paving, complex brick patterns etc.

Simple patterns you can control with the Material Type (Strip).

Yea right, that's like saying Tiger Woods is going to get golf lessons from Charles Barkley.......... Well, come to think of it, the way Tiger is playing, lessons from Barkley could not hurt.
