Materials- Herringbone, vertical, diagonal or solid. No Horizontal Swatches.
I live in New Zealand, we have a lot of horizontal weatherboard houses so I would like a horizontal swatch.
There are a variety of swatches but no way to re-orient them.
Also this is not my area of expertise but how would you import different materials to the library (I note there is a file and a thumbnail for materials) so presumably you need both.
Can you please add some horizontal materials to the default library please, thank you.
Also I note that when dragging the material to the surface it wraps around the whole joined element (__ see attached image__). Do you need to explode the joined surfaces so it only affects a FACE? How do you need to manage different sides of walls with different materials?

kindest regards,
Max Drake

  • Hi Max,

    You would need to raise a support request to ask for other materials in Shape.

    In the full version of BricsCAD you have access to a larger set of materials or create your own. You can also assign different materials to different faces of a solid, and apply different map rotations

    Attach renders of a simple house clad in corrugated steel.

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
