Hi guys!


I'm new to customizing the exterior and interior finishes, I'm wondering if there's a way i could bring in Hardie siding and have it show up in softplan from Hardie's actual colour samples. That or if a customer asks for specific Toryls flooring, how can i bring in that sample into their rendered drawing? Thanks in advance for any help given!

To make it work properly, you need seamless textures otherwise it will show up as a bunch of boxes stacked next to and over one another. Don't know if someone has these for Hardie's or you could contact them to see if they have them available.

In some cases, when you have a sample that has no variations in it such has paint samples or flat aluminum, I have uses the Windows Snipping tool (or you can use other similar programs) to take a jpg inside the sample (avoiding lettering, etc...) and that has worked fairly well.
