The Cladding Tool is part of our paid subscription plan.
Updated for Version 1.3.2
Many variables control how a Cladding System is designed and assembled. The Cladding Palette breaks down the components as outlined below.
When working with the Cladding Tool, you can either work with a face selected - in which case the Face will update live with any changes you make. Or, you can work on a Cladding System and then apply it to the building by clicking on the faces you wish to apply it to.
The header of the palette allows you to select the System you want to apply/edit.
When working with a face selected, the Update all button will update all faces that have the current System applied.
You can create a new Cladding System with the + button.
You can remove Cladding from a face by selecting it and then using the Remove button.
As you update a Cladding System, the changes are updated live on both the selected face and the drawing. Once you have completed your updates, click the Update all button to have all the Cladding that uses the edited system rebuilt.
A Cladding System can contain up to four sets of Frames. A single set of Frames all share the same orientation, profile shape, size and colour.
You can create any number of Frames at set spacing.
Frames can be added, updated and removed along with the overall profile properties.
You can expand the Cladding Palette with the triangle icon for a long list of Frames.
The icons of the tabs indicate the various orientations in use within the current system.
By default Frames are spaced automatically:
- For vertical frames this is calculated based on the frame with the largest offset.
- For horizontal frames, automatic spacing repeats level by level throughout the building
The Add button allows you to add a new set of Frames (up to a maximum of four sets)
Use the Add button to create a new Frame that uses a different orientation, profile shape, size or colour.
