I need to show my gable hip returns as a standing seam texture but maintain the asphalt roof texture. When I edit surface of the hip it also changes the whole roof texture. How can this be done?

I played around with some wedge and pyramid polygons and after some reconfiguring of the height, width, depth and careful placement over the hip roof texture I had success.

Thomas,

Before changing the texture on your hip returns, edit the "Roof Edge and change the roof material to a different material.

I dragged a JPEG into my last post but it didn't get attached for some reason. I guess I better learn how to attach a photo to my posts. Is there a forum on how to post JPEGS with your reply to posts? :)

the way to change a gables "hip return" roof texture from

the main roof texture is to edge the gables "ROOF EDGE"

texture to what ever you want, the main roofs texture

will stay as it was but the hip returns roof texture will

change to what you want.

 

NOTE: james johnson posted the answer above.

Wow that was much easier than configuring polygons! Thanks James Johnson! and everyone else for their input. It's been my goal to learn something new about SoftpPlan 14 on every new plan start. This forum has made that a whole lot easier.
