Hi everybody,

I have been using chief for a very long time, but I still come across this issue. I need rock around the stove area and the fireplace, but no matter what i do, it shows as the default paint color. If I add a stone wall in another room, it works fine. can someone please help. Driving me crazy.

Thank you Brian

As Shane said... Would be a good idea to post the plan. In the meantime, are you trying to paint the walls, use a material region, use a polyline solid, add a wallcovering, moulding...?

Brian,

 

Try changing the interior and exterior wall materials from the plan's 'default' to your csv2021t. Sometimes if a wall gets painted there's no retrieving it, not saying that's what happened, but if you change the interior and exterior wall materials in the materials dbx your stone texture returns. Only tried the fireplace but might work elsewhere as well.

I redefined the walls to have 1/2" drywall on each side. Added the stone via the Materials panel, then set the thickness back to 3-1/2", or something like that.

I define a new wall in Brian's plan, stone, studs, drywall. Stone does not show. Define same wall in new plan, stone shows.

 

What is overriding the stone in Brian's plan?

Eric, I think it's the 'default' material and the wall might have gotten painted at some point. If you change the interior and exterior wall material from default to the stone material csv...it works perfectly as it should. Not in the wall dbx, but in the material tab. Learned that about many moons ago from that would be smarter about such things.

 

...and did you define a new wall, in Brian's plan, by copying the/an old wall that had the same default material? Sometimes the default setting will mess things up.

 

And wait, I'm pretty sure Glenn is awake and he can set it straight.

Hey Brian,

Open the room>Materials>Walls>Select Material>Use Default Material.

I think at some point you may have painted the walls or changed the material through the room dbx. In which case I believe the ROOM will control the wall material from that point forward...until you check "Use Default Material".

I think that was the method I was searching for. It works with the method I described but I think this method is faster/better.

Michael, this didn't work when I tried it. I tried it wrong DOH. I selected the wall not the room. Nice.

3 walls shown. Defined as New, not a copy. Stone, framing, drywall.

 

Drawn inside existing structure, shows default? finish. Wall drawn outside any structure renders correctly. Wall drawn in new structure built with default exterior walls shows correctly.

 

Anyone understand why the incorrect one is incorrect?

      Newbie to Home Designer Pro! I've watched a bunch of tutorials, taken the bootcamp, and searched the help system and forum... Seems like I'm missing something very simple?
       
      How do you make a wall that has exterior on both sides? For example: an exterior accent wall (like the pony wall (?) in the pic coming off the left-side of the entry) OR specifically the walls making up the exposed Covered Entry in the pic--which would have a foundation, ceiling, roof, and most-importantly an exterior layer (stone) on both sides? Do I need to create this type of wall from scratch? Isn't this a common thing?
       
      I've tried create a new wall type and altering a specific drawn exterior wall to no avail. Scratching my head here and feeling silly that I can't figure it out!

      about a year ago, with an X12 updates, thick wall connections (anything over 8" thick) became unstable...especially when 3 walls intersect.
       
      I'm attaching an X12 plan that demonstrates several issues I'm having.  Curious if others see the same behavior.  notes within the plan describing the behaviors
       
      I realize that layered walls will likely fix much of this but I do not like layered walls....they have a whole set of issues that I don't want to get into the pros and cons.  again, this worked fine before, but broke with an X12 update and is still broken in X13 beta.
       
      Appreciate everyone's input.

      I changed the defaults for the Glass Pony Wall and I would now like to change them back to their original defaults, but I don't recall the original settings. Is there an easy way to do this?

      I'm a relatively new user and am working my way through the Bachelor View project after the Chic Cottage project disappeared. I'm at video 6, "Creating Rooms and Defining the Ceilings" but I noticed something funky going on with some of my walls from the foundation/basement showing up on the first floor. I'm sure part of the issue is that some of my wall heights/foundation/stem walls are off, but the videos don't show what my defaults should be set to. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
      Thank you!

      I'm having issues getting two joining external walls to have different materials and meet on the external corner ( pebble dash and brick) . I've checked my intersections and their mitered correctly and if i select ' through end/start' in structural for the wall it just shifts the issue to the adjoining wall. Please help?
