Half Wall Issue

Recommended Posts

I started using the half wall tool for showers where there is a half wall with a glass panel that sits on top. I use a polyline solid for the glass so that's not a factor.  Since our shower half walls are built with 2 x 4 the 1/2" HardiBacker, 1/4" of mortar then the tile I have made a new wall called "Shower Pony Wall" with those layers.  What I was hoping for is to have the ability to change the surface material (tile) on the half wall to whatever the project requires without effecting any other wall.  However, When I first draw the shower wall using my new wall it is fine showing the default tile I used to create the wall and all other wall surface still show painted drywall.  The issue is when I go into the shower wall and change the tile to a new tile it changes every wall surface to that tile.  Any thoughts?

If you want separate materials for different surfaces, you need to define separate materials, otherwise every surface with that material will be affected by the material change. There's a lot of requests to be able to paint one wall at a time but there's nothing like that in Chief yet, so you either need to break the wall where needed and apply a different material or apply a material region to just the area you want to change.

Im not painting the wall.  I created a new wall and it should have its own materials without effecting any others.  It would be like if it changed the brick on a house and it changes all the walls to brick
