Home Designer Architectural Roof Question

Recommended Posts

In HDA2017 I have constructed three separate buildings on terrain. One is currently in place and has a metal roof which is different from the other two planned buildings.

 

I have tried selecting just a single structure and then adjust the roof materials to match the existing structure.  However, when I do this, it also sets the other two unselected structures to the same roof material.  


The HDA 2017 Reference Manual doesn't appear to show any way (that I could see) to set different roof materials on separate structures.

 

Am I missing something simple here or might this be a limitation of HDA2017?

 

Best regards,

 

Bruce

To get different roof materials for the roof, you have to turn off Auto rebuild roofs.

Law,

 

Thanks for the response.

 

That is one of the permutations I had tried.  I double checked that "AutoRebuild" was off and tried it again with the same results.

 

Maybe I am missing something else?

 

Maybe HD Architectural package doesn't allow this?   An odd problem.

 

Thanks!
Bruce

Done with Suite, so it may be done in Architectural.

OK, figured it out.  

 

Definitely Auto Rebuild must be off/stay off.

 

For the second roof, don't use the Build =>Roof command to spec roof material.

 

Just use the spray can tool to add the different bit map on top of the other structure.  Easy ... 

 

Thanks!
Bruce
