Pony wall conversion

Recommended Posts

I am using Home Designer Pro 10 and am having some wall conversion issues.

I've built the house, roofed it and so on, I want to convert the outside front wall to a pony wall (which I've done under wall specs.) but when I go to change the material the entire wall changes, I just want the lower third to change. What am I doing wrong?

How are you changing the material?

I am using material painter to leave the top two thirds as siding and the lower third as stone but when I place stone on the lower third it applies that material to the top as well. The top and bottom are replicating each other which is what I don't want. I've attached the wall specs

What happens if you apply the materials via the Materials tab?

 

Or, define a new wall type with the correct material and use it as part of the pony wall.

And, you are painting in Component mode ...

Everything stays the same (using materials tab). Yes to component mode . . . opening up wall specs show me that the top is siding and the bottom is stone but in reality "not"

Post your plan file and I'll take look. Close Pro first.

Set the wall to use the default material.
