Drawing CMU wall

Postby RSWeir » Wed Feb 22, 2017 5:32 am

I used a modified Masonry wall to draw typical wall using CMU (7-5/8" x 7-5/8" x 15-5/8"). Why is texture of the CMU only showing on the inside surface of the wall and not the exterior?

Hi RSWeir,

Thank you for your post.

It sounds to me that that when you drew the walls you drew them in an anti-clockwise direction. By default everything in PlusSpec is drawn clockwise but if you want to draw walls anti-clockwise press the INSERT key (for PC) or FN + Return (for Mac) and it will change the direction that the walls can be drawn. You will also notice when you are drawing the walls that there's text that reads 'Internal' and 'External' on either side of the wall. This text will change when you toggle the direction (as stated before) to show you how the wall will be generated.

Would you be able to please let me know if this fixes the issue you're having?
Kind Regards,
Grant

Grant:
Yes this was the problem...after posting the question, I remembered seeing a video that addressed the issue.
Thank you,
