Am I able to import a library of textures all at once, for example, Certainteed Monogram vinyl siding? If so, what is the procedure?

What are you using the textures for? Modeling? Bitmap Fills? What file format are the textures in?

Assuming that the textures are in jpg or other bitmap format, save them to the DataCAD Textures folder and then create the materials in DataCAD using the edit materials function.
You can edit one of the materials included in DataCAD and save as a new material. You will need to try different scaling values to get the siding textures to the correct scale in DataCAD.

Thanks for the replies, Josh and Jim. Yes, for modeling. Certainteed Monogram seems to be preferred by most.Just wanted to have a good representation. I will try your instructions.
Thanks,
Bob
