composite wall exterior intersections



I am pretty new to Archicad and I am having an issue with exterior corners with composite materials. In the

attached image you can see the plywood peeking out at the corner. I tried looking through tutorials and this community page to figure it out. I am sure it is because I am not up to speed with correct terminology. How can I get the siding to wrap the corner. Normally it would not be an issue because most have corner boards, but this house's siding wraps the corner. Any help pointing to a tutorial would be greatly appreciated.

It will likely be to do with building material priorities. The plywood will be higher than the siding causing it to pass through.

@oippam See if this setting fixes it... You need to turn it on [Tick].

Thanks Lee!

I actually was playing around with that and it did not seem to work. I tried dropping the priority of all the plywood in the list to below the siding.  What did work was applying the siding to the Fill Orientation.
