Editing roofs

Recommended Posts

I just downloaded X-8 and can not find a tool to edit roof finishes, for example changing from the standard asphalt shingle to a standing seam metal. What am I missing?

....or use the Material painter when in 3D view.  You can then experiment with different types of materials, and if you want to adjust something slightly use the "rainbow" Adjust Material Definition tool.

I used the  material painter and that worked for what I am doing now. However, I am curious, is there only the one color (blue) for the asphalt shingles? I have tried to change the color but every time I do, it shows a solid color with no texture. Is is possible to have the asphalt shingle texture in different colors? Not, shakes or cedar shingles....

Make the changes in Build Roof>Edit All Roof Planes.  That way you can select the material from the  Library.
