In modeling a historic house for renovation, I’d like to paint the exterior with Cladding_Siding. The default white siding would be fine, except I need it to be a soft yellow and narrower. I’ve changed the color and width. Now I’d like to make it a Unique Texture to use on many surfaces of this complex building. Following the Knowledge Center instructions, I drew a rectangle around my new paint, then right-clicked there and chose Make Unique Texture. It instantly reverted to the default color and width.
So I abandoned the default paint and made my own sample: a rectangle with the color I want, and horizontal lines of the desired siding width. But Make Unique Texture will only sample that color, not the lines. If I select even one of the lines in the sample, Make Unique Texture is no longer available.
I’m at a loss how to proceed. Maybe I’m confusing paint and texture? I suppose I could photograph the existing building, but it’s 80 miles away. There must be a way to do this within SU?
