Is there any way to give  a wall material a color and a hatch.  Attached is a file showing an elevation I am trying to give a sand texture to but I want it to also have a grey tone.  I'd prefer not to do filled regions in between each panel reveal but can't see any way to add color + hatch.

 

Thanks.

Find the material you used in the materials list and go to modify. On the general tab there should be a place to apply both surface and cut patterns. Apply the sand pattern to the surface material and it will show up on the walls that have that material applied. If you need one with and one without the pattern, you will need to create separate materials and apply as required to acheive the look you want.

Thanks for your time.

I guess I am not understanding the method you are using to "apply" the pattern to the wall. I alway control wall surface patterns by the material applied to the wall either by wall type or using the Paint tool.

For shaded views, only one pattern can be assigned to a wall surface but the color can be seperate from the pattern.  For rendered views, everything is in the material image files.

First - sorry I posted in structure topics.

James thanks for your help- WWHUB confirmed what I was hoping wasn't the case.  When I say "applying" I only mean modifying the properties of the material in the material editor.  What I was trying to figure out was how to modify a material so that it had multiple surface patterns i.e. a solid grey color and a sand hatch pattern.

I guess my problem is that I don't want to be in a rendered view - it needs to be in a hidden line view.  If I put the view lets say on consistent colors - then all of my wall hosted components show their colors -

I think I could go back and change all of the families settings to show correctly in that view setting but I don't  have that time now.  I fixed the problem with a filled region for now.  I'll have to do it correctly after this issue goes out. 

 If I am still missing something from your suggestion I am sorry.

 

Thanks again.

Any update on this topic?  I'm in Revit 2013 now.  I would like to use 1 material that shows my 16" x 60" panel joints AND at the same time show a sand pattern for my different types of panels.  Any suggestions?

You could use the Split Face tool and create a boundry around the different panels and then Paint them, depending on how big your project is it could be time consuming.  If whole panels are different you could split the wall and duplicate it and apply a different material to the new wall type.  Those are pretty much your only options.
