Slump block

Recommended Posts

Library does not contain slump block.  How can I modify a wall material (CMU 8" block) to a 4X8X16?  Essentially I just need to cut the size of the CMU height to 4".

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

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) 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.

Change the material. Read about materials in Help.

Thanks for the help.  I am using using Home Designer Pro 2021 version.  Not sure if using a Mac makes a difference.  have gone through a number of tutorials and help options, but not finding exactly how to re-dimension an existing material or creating a new one from scratch.  I will try the YouTube link.  Am relatively new user, so appreciate the basics.

Textures, like the block you are asking about are simply image files that are tiled over an object.

 

The image may be stretched or compressed in the X and Y direction to change its appearance.

Have figured out how to create the 4" block and applied to a sample wall.  Now on to getting on my project walls.  Thanks for the help.  Al
