Does anyone know a way to have two types of roofing material (ie. asphalt shingle and standing seam metal) on a double hip roof?

In the past I've created two separate roofs and pitches to accomplish this. Hoping there is a fix that I'm not aware of when using the double hip option.

Following......I don’t think it can be done in 2020. I’ve been drawing (2) separate roofs to get the look.

I with jason, I think you have to draw 2 seperate roofs.... If there's nothing under the "Edit edge" dialog box to edit the material of just that edge, then I doubt it could be done.

You can also add another roof over the top with adjusted lollipops or a shed dormer offset correctly (use walls or beams set not to extract and offset so that roof material is the only thing showing while turning off everything else), or use a beam with unique material and size set to fit to roof then offset, or use a ceiling and offset over the top of the double hip. Depends on the shape of what you are trying to cover and how much adjusting you might do. It may take a bit of work, but could be less hassle for how the fascia and soffit align with one double hip roof system and something added on top for the different roof material. If using SoftList it may get confusing, but works well often (and can be set to turn off in certain modes or views if desired.

With a wide beam set to fit to roof then offset up and adjusted into place. This does not work if you need to see inside the house/roof as well or have anything other than a straight gable end. Could also try a solid wedge or driveway, patio, sidewalk, planting bed, etc. all with correct offsets and thicknesses.
