Now that we've edited this wall here let's go back in right now and let's click rename, and let's call this metal stud, with metal panel. Now depending on how much detail you want to set up here we could start off with just a generic material, generic name, generic setting that you could then go back in and edit per project, or we can be more detailed and we can set this up to a six inch, metal stud with metal panel. We'll click okay and as we click okay now, based on the materials and the settings that we've changed I'm going to click to deslect, I'll zoom into a corner here we'll see our rigid insulation, we'll see our metal panel we'll see our six inch metal stud and then when we hit F3 on our keyboard, we'll see our metal panel now starting to display.
