Marking tiling / finishes areas on a 3d room model

Recommended Posts

Ive got a 3d model of a room like the one below (but much more detailed with sanitry ware etc - its a bathroom)

I need to mark on the tiling areas, whats the best tool to do this ? In the example below i want to mark up that i want to tile the wall 50% of its height (from the floor level) and 100% of its width. I would show this by marking the area with a polygon, colouring it red (or other) and then showing that red = tiled in a key.

Ive tried using 2d polygon tool when in front view and then positioning it into the correct space in top/plan, but it seems really Fiddly, i thought there must be an easier way.

Using these models ultimately we produce 2d sections VPs.

The 3d poly is a basic modeling technique. Give it a class for visiblity control and worksheet isolation.

There is a long and interesting thread currently active in the Architect forum which discusses this question for exterior walls. A sample vwx file near the end of page 2 might be useful. Here's the link:
