Recommended Posts

I have created a wood beam entrance out of a polyline solid

 

I would like to rotate the grain of the wood i selected

 

Is this posible?

I made this video for another thread and question, but I would have probably just built that particular truss using a similar method...

 

 
...otherwise, I would have built it using MULTIPLE polyline solids.  Thing is that you CAN rotate the material using the Adjust Material Definitions tool (rainbow tool), but to get it to look right you'll need a different material on all the various pieces.

I noticed in watching the video that you said using the eye dropper tool added a new material to the base (in your case Siding-4).  I have been doing that and I believe it has been the cause of some issues I have been having.  For instance when editing a wall polyline in 3D view which I had painted with shakes from another wall I accidentally deleted it and I notice the original siding was still there.  So my question is should I not be doing that and instead create a new wall type with shakes instead of siding and then change the wall type instead of painting with the eye dropper?
Thanks
Alan
