Same wall family on each side of the corner.  For some reason the stone coursing switches to a vertical pattern on front wall.

Are you saying to open the wall family and somehow rotate the material 90 degrees?  Since the front main wall which has the vertical stone pattern is the exact same family as the side wall and columns which have the horizontal stone pattern, I am not clear on how rotating anything in the family will help.

Are you saying to copy the wall, paste it somewhere else, click on the material and rotate it?  I didn't know you could do that but will give it a try.

I suspect that faint whizzing sound was your point flying way over my head and that I just need a little clarification.

I fyour fill pattern is a model pattern hover your mouse above a pattern line and use tab to locate it.  You can then rotate it.  The rendering pattern should follow.

Hi, what i told you is: pick in that "problematic" wall, go to the properties, pick "Edit/New", duplicate with other name, go to "structural editor and select the "Layer" of "Exterior" material, there you have the image JPG or PNG for the material and also you can "Rotate" your material...

I duplicated the stone material with a new name, selected the rendering image and rotated it 90 degrees.  I then duplicated with a new name the wall with the stone finish that makes up the lower half of my stack wall.  I changed the stone finish of it to the new "vertically rotated" stone material.  I then duplicated my stack wall with a new name and then changed the bottom half of the stack wall to the new stone finished wall that had the vertically rotated stone finish.  I did a draft rendering and, tadaaa, the new wall rendered the stone turned 90 degrees from the image in THAT stone finish which made it appear correct.

Back when you could call someone at Autodesk who knew Revit, I was told that "stack walls were just wierd sometimes."  Is this just a new one of those lovely "stack wall moments" they I have detested in the past?
