Multiple Textures on Wall

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I have a wall I'd like to create that is painted black up to a certain height, then is painted blue. 

 

I was wondering the best way to create such an object without having to draw two walls on top of one another or some other kind of multiple object solution. 

 

I've attempted to use a decal texture but wasn't able to figure out how to apply it across the length of an entire wall.

 

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum

 

Yes you can.  Create or adapt a wall style.  Set the brick component to be a specified height above the layer elevation or the bottom of the wall.

 

To save you time looking it up 😀.  The first component in the list is the left/exterior side.

Thanks michaelk!

 

I've been experimenting with your suggestion and I was wondering if there is a way to make components overlap. As it stands, one of my components will overhang the other. 

 

Thanks!

Components have their own slice of the wall section.  So you can't have a baseboard and crown molding without having one of them stick out further in front of the other.

 

Is this what you're looking for?  Or do you want the brick to be flush to the blue section of the wall?

@KGreeneHi, you can easily draw a 2D poly on the wall face, extrude it 0 and add a texture. you will need to move it off the wall by 1 mm. This is a common way to colour walls in different rooms without creating lots of wall styles.

@KGreene You can also use the "Extract" command in the 3D tools...the default will give you a NURBS surface.  If you don't like dealing with NURBS stuff, you can choose to have it extract a planar surface (either polygon or polyline). You can then reshape it and extrude it as required.
