rendering eaves

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if it is possible to render (or even colour) the eaves / barge-boards of a roof? The only options I can find are for the roof-face & dormer-ends, so I end up with a white band around the base of the roof structure. confused.gif" border="0

Simtav, As far as I know the only way to do what you want is to create 3D polygons, colored any way you want, to be the fascia & barges. It takes some time but the result is good. PLC

You can colour the eaves easily. In the class list , edit the class your roof is in. I usually call this something like 'RoofSurface' or whatever, set the colour in the left side of the screen and click the 'use at creation' box. Make sure your roof or roof planes have the texturing set to 'class texture' in the IO palette and you should be away laughing. If you want to change the colour open 'classes' then edit 'RoofSurface' class and change the colour. The surface of the roof still uses the texture you set.
