Changing Gutter Material

Recommended Posts

Why can't we change the material for the default gutter

molding once the roof has been built? When I first build

the roof I have the opportunity to change the gutter

material in the "Build Roof" dbx but once the roof has

been built there is no longer an option to change the

material in the "Roof Plane Specification" dbx. What's

up with that? Very inconvenient.

if you unlock the Gutter layer (Locked by default once roof built)  and display it if needed , eg in plan view you can then alter the Gutter materials, profile etc

Yeah but if I do it that way the change doesn't "stick". For

instance in "Full Perspective Overview" if I subsequently

change the "Active Layer Set" to something else like "All

On Set" and then change back to "Camera View Set" the 

material reverts back to whatever was defined during the

initial roof build and ignores my changes.

Mick,

 

You said what I said, but you beat me to it.

My post was superfluous, so I deleted it.

Thanks fellas, interesting that this seems to be a problem especially

for people named Richard.  :huh:  I guess I will need to have another

play with this to see what is going on. It seems to me that if the gutter

layer is locked you shouldn't be able to edit it, but if it is unlocked it

should show up as an editable option in the "Roof Plane Specification"

dbx. You should also have the "no molding on selected edge" option

here too. It would make controlling gutter behavior a lot easier IMHO.
