I don't have CADImage tools but I would expect Design/Align 3D Texture/Set Origin to work.

Or maybe invert the direction of one of the walls?

Depends which cladding you are using.
Panels has a horizontal offset you could use.

I find the easiest way set the origin of both claddings to one of the story setting as opposed to the bottom cnr of the wall. The setting is on the top right of the Main Covering page on the AC 20 version. Should line up then. Think it works of the drawing xyz then

I adjusted the offset from the origin by how much it was off by.

Turn Wall and Beam Reference lines on temporarily in View > On-screen View Options if you want to see the result

Is there any way to offset Cadimage coverings horizontally? I want this cladding break to be centered above the window.

The only way I have found to do this is to set the reference origin to wall center. This, however, breaks the the vertical consistency with the adjacent wall...

Any ideas?

Hi All. This conversation has been very helpful in figuring out how to align cladding over multiple storeys' so thanks for that. However, I'm now trying to align the wall cladding with the roof cladding, so as to continue the seams of the vertical cladding up the wall and over the gable roof. The roof covering settings doesn't seem to have an option to adjust the origin. Does anyone have any tips for this situation? Thankyou

There is a hotspot in plan view on the roof covering tool that controls the origin point (its usually in the centre)
