Walls can be defined with a vertical Profile material, used to physically represent materials like Board & Batten.

This is a huge improvement considering the growing popularity of vertical siding!

Coupled with the transition wall option we have much more control.

This is great.  What's missing is HOW DO YOU DO IT!  Been trying to figure it out all day and have no clue where to look.

I don't have 2020 yet, but Board & Batten Wall is in your wall material so that you can configure your own wall. You can also see Board & Batten in your Paint under Siding.

In the wall definition select Board and Batten as the profile from the Siding Profiles. Select the 'Vertical option to rotate the profile 90 degrees.

That didn't seem to work.  Now I have what appears to be three types of siding on my wall

Without seeing the actual drawings, it looks as though you still have a texture image applied to the Board and Batten siding.

 

You should only use Color for the texture. The profile itself will create shadows as needed.

 

Please send us a ticket with your project so we can take a closer look if that does not resolve the issue.

Thanks for sending the ticket. We found a few items that will help your project.

 

Although you have the texture set to 'Use color' the Relief Depth is set to a value higher than zero and that is creating the lines that you see. 
 
The wall definitions don't all have the Board and Batten profile assigned and set to Vertical. (I also increased the thickness in the wall definition to enhance the profile.) Some walls are still using a regular siding on them. but they can be edited to the Board and batten wall.
 
The Gable ends also need to be edited to use the Board and Batten profile and have it set to vertical.

Thanks Brent.  Got it.  I would love to see a Friday fundamentals or even an online class that focuses solely on rendering and how to get the best 3d effects with all the different settings.

Thanks for the clarification on the board and batten. I have struggled with this and now it all makes sense. I'm with Tom. I'd love to see a Friday Fundamental going over best practices for creating  and display accurate live elevation available in version 2020.
