Building this breeze brick wall?

Anonymous

Hi all,

I am looking at building this breeze brick wall. Is there any tool to do it or I have to manually model it with morph ?

Please see attached.

Thanks all

If it is regularly spaced openings as in the lower centre image, then place one opening and create and array matrix (multiply) in the elevation.

Or you could use many beams with a higher building material strength, create a matrix of beams or space them out randomly a required, intersect them with the wall and place them in a hidden layer.

Or you could create a single complex profile beam with many fills in the pattern you want and use that, again placing in a hidden layer.

Hi Barry,

Thanks for your suggestions.

I have modelled it as attached. But now I have a question of how to align the brick pattern to the start corner, say bottom left corner. I can't find any hotspot/placeholder like in the fill, to drag to the corner.

Please help

Thank you

All you can do is use "Align 3D Texture" command in the Design menu.
You can snap to the bottom corner of the wall or to the bottom corner of an opening.
That assumes your surface material has been set up with the texture and hatching to start from one of those points.

But it is clear from your image that the openings do not match the brick hatching anyway, and you can not stretch the hatching.
You will need to create a new surface or adjust the openings so they match the hatching.
