hi

I have been trying to work on a vertical timber cladding and have came to a number of problems. The reason i am trying to make this to define the walls and make them look more like cladding instead of just attaching a material to the face of the wall and choosing wood. i made a generic model of the system and tried to just place in front of the wall. another attempt was to go into the profile of the wall and change it there. but with no result. does anyone know of a soloution to this or has anyone made a vertical timber cladding before.

 

thanks

I have never heard of "timber" cladding.  Vertical wood siding, vertical board on board or board & batten siding, horizontal ship-lap siding, horizontal tongue & groove siding.... < All of those are best done as material assignments.

this is the style i am after with the hit or miss timber cladding ( called that in the uk - sorry should of mentioned that) the cladding im trying to work on will look like this to give a bit more definition instead of just changing the material. the project is for a disabled house in the highlands in scotland. still at conceptual stage. any advice would be much apprieciated.

 

 

thanks

In the US, we call that the vertical board on board style.

 

This problem is really no different than we have with a simple 1-1/2" deep "box" rib metal siding and I would do the same here as we do for that.  I would still model this finish and use a material.  I would have the furring as a layer and the siding layer being the full thickness of the two boards.  This gives you an exterior line in plans that is the outside limit.  In large scale, detail plans, I would use a repeating detail for the boards.  But the material designation will work for renderings and elevations and that is your best option.
