2 buildings different roof materials

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.  Ive created 2 different buildings on the same file so i can view them how they will be positioned on my property.  One is a house and the other is a steel building.  Selecting diiferent exterior wall materials was easy enough but i cant figure out how to use different roof material for each building.  I want to use shingles on the house and metal roof on the steel building.  Any suggestions?

Pick your material, apply it to the roof.

Im sure im missing something simple but everytime I try to change the roof material for the steel building it also changes the roof material on the house

Make sure the Painter Component Mode is correct. Should be Component.

The painter mode selected is component and it still changes both roofs. Is there anyway to separate the buildings and keep them on the same file?

I checked in a copy of Suite which I believe has the same roof options as Architectural. 

 

Could not get different materials on 2 buildings.

 

This has been discussed on the forum sometime in the past, so searching may find a better answer.

 

No way to separate buildings.

 

Pro, with its advanced roof tools can do this.

Turn off 'auto rebuild roof',  THEN use the paint can.

Jo_Ann's got it.  Turn off Auto Rebuild Roofs first.  Then use the Material Painter spray can while in Component Mode.
