Painting Ceiling/ Roof Plane Interior 2 Different colors (See attached)

Recommended Posts

Hello all and thank you in advance for your responses!

 

Could I get some help on how to take care of the attached? I am a new user and am having some issues with painting the ceiling (roof plane interior different colors)- I would like the flat ceiling to be white and the angled wall which is considered to be a ceiling pale yellow. 

 

Is there a way to do this? everything seems connected when I try to use the blend color tool on the angled surface, it also modifies the flat ceiling. 

 

Thank you all again.-- Also, if my .plan file is required, please respond and I can post as necessary.

Every object in Chief has a dialog box and a Material Tab, my advise is to use that first and leave off using the Material eyedropper and painter until you have carefully studied the Reference Manual on how and when to use those tools.

Yes.  Post the plan.  And I would recommend almost never using the material painter in Blend mode.  I turn that off and leave it off except in very special situations.  That particular toggle may be responsible for more problems in Chief than any other.  I have long believed that it should have always been toggled off by default.

Alaskan_Son,

 

Please see the attached. (The second floor bedrooms is where this "situation" occurs.)

If I'm looking at the right spot, its a ceiling you built with a polyline solid right?  I think there's probably a better way that spot could have been modeled, however to work with what you have, select that polyline solid, Convert To Solid, Explode Shape, and then paint the desired face.

Alaskan_son,

No I am actually talking about the angled ceiling/ wall to the left and right of the polyline solid.

Solver,

 

Thank you for your response. It worked great!! An additional question regarding this same issue. In my house that angled wall is actually white in the closets and yellow everywhere else. Is there anything I can do to make that a reality in my model? (Would I have to make additional roof planes to fix it to where it matches my physical house exactly?)

You could draw in your own ceiling planes. This should also work for the rooms instead of changing the roof.

 

You may need to uncheck Use Room Ceiling Finish for the new ceiling planes.

      We're trying to figure out how to change the angle of pendent lights on vaulted ceilings. When we create the ceiling angle, the lights follow and aren't angled properly. How do we change the lights so they go vertical rather than at a tilt?

      Hi,
      I am using Chief Architect X8 on a Mac.
      I am having trouble with roof planes - I want to be able to change the baseline height but it keeps defaulting back and won't alter.
      Yet when I open the same file on another computer I can change it
      Any suggestions?
       
      Thanks

      Hello, I’m needing help lowering the roof. I’m trying to make a 50x80x16 shop with the pitch lower than the default gable height. I’m new to this and I’m hoping this software will help build our dreams on our farm. I want the look of the attached photo with the front being the 80 ft side.
