Exterior Coatings

Anonymous
Not applicable
i think there should be an option to create exterior coatings.

Now what i mean. When we finish a building there is always a final coating. Stucko? Marble? Bricks? it does not matter. But the coating is over the wall, slabs, beams....

For the time beeing i use the cadimage accessories to mimic that feature.
But this is wall-centric feature, and just extent the accesory up and down left or right.

It would be great to have such a feature.
Ofcourse the unified outer skin, should be dividable , because we have different coloring- materials in the outer skin.

not just 'coatings': parametric assemblies. assemblies of components/elements/surfaces that take the accessories idea to the next logical level. none of this complex profile rubbish.

me too - i don't believe it's possible to build the model properly without them .... without resorting to extensive workarounds or dumbed-down profiles (which - quite frankly - are workarounds anyway).
