Aluminum Soffit in Materials

Recommended Posts


I have completed the design for the client and would like to change the default 3 1/2" wood soffit to standard white aluminum soffit.

I can't find any reference to soffit materials anywhere, except in the materials list generated by the program. Nothing in the library. The only other place is if one is designing a coffered ceiling or drop beam.

I am working on the exterior soffit, on the perimeter of the house, garage and the ceiling in the breezeway. If possible i would like to add a manufacture's colour variety of this type of soffit to the library.

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.


You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on, then see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.


Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.


And, turn on signature display too.
