Walls in 3D - stacked materials?

Recommended Posts

is it possible to use the VW wall styles to represent a wall that has different materials on the lower portion of the wall than on the upper portion ?  That is ... what if my wall has a CMU veneer on the bottom 3 feet, and then uses regular clay masonry for a veneer above the CMU.   It seems to me that the VW wall components are not allowed to "stack" on top of each other and must be in different vertical planes.   I attached a sketch of a vertical section.


If it is possible, please tell me how.   I know I can draw 2 separate walls for the veneers, but this very cumbersome, especially when trying to insert a window or door.


My goal is simply to be able to represent the wall correctly in both 2D and 3D views.  I'm not concerned about the proper height for the cut plane for a floor plan.

@domer1322, short answer - no.  Longer answer - nope.  You're doing the right thing by building one wall on top of another.  Inserting doors/windows becomes a challenge.
