I've designed a PBR panel with a 3d polygon. Saved it in the siding file w/ lap,board and batten. It doesn't display like it should. Any and all suggestions is appreciated.

You need to give more information Larry. What is it designed like? What does it display like, and how did you intend it to display?

I don't know if it makes a difference. Did you did you make it with lines and then go to your Symbols Library "Profiles/ Siding" and use the One Step to create it?

I designed it with 3d polygon. The first time I designed it just as a sheet would look. I save ìt to the profile- siding file. Changed my wall definition to the wall profile I created. It just didn’t look like the original file. After a pause in my work I went back and adjusted the depth of the wall siding to match my creation and that made it look better. Then I went back and ajusted the original from over all measurements of a single sheet to 3 ft. center to center. It seems to create a realistic version of a metallic building wall. Thanks for helping.
