Vertical stacked CMU texture

David Bearss

We have a client that wants to do vertical stacked cmu rather than a running bond. Need to show in a rendering. Anybody have a texture of that they would be willing to share? My texture creation skills are lacking at best.
Thanks in advance.

If you use Cinerender, you can probably import settings from library for running bond and change the settings to be stacked. Most of these use procedural shading, rather than textures.

I had a look, one of the brick surfaces (not the CMU) use the procedural brick shader for white bricks on all relevant channels.

If you go in to the Brick shader settings, look for a 'Shift' parameter, change it from 50 to 0 and you will get stacked bricks. Change this in all channels that use the brick shader.

If you want to change the texture, you would have to edit every other row to shift it 50% as well in a photo editor.

Or you can try this . I had to reduce size to attach. This was generated with the Basilite Masonry Designer - a very useful tool: https://www.basalite.com/masonry-designer

Thats pretty cool and will have to check out later. I found an image to use and now am going to fiddle with getting the color correct. Am going to borrow a block from the mason and scan to get correct color.
