Hey all,

I'm trying to create a randomized metal panel material in Revit 2012.  I have attached a photo showing my intent.

Instead of creating quite a few split faces (which could be potentially tedious, ha) I was wondering if there is a way to do

this in an automated process.  I know I could make a bitmap image like the one below, but I'm also hoping to take it a step

further.  I'd like to have some control to make the contrast of the material lighten as it rises.  I've added a photo of the

Fluff Bakery (LTL Architects) to show what the intent there. 

 

I supposed I could create around 3 bitmap images with variable levels of contrast, and create a simple wall and split the

face a few times, then apply the varied materials to each face?  Sounds like it could work? I'd appreciate any thoughts

you guys may have.  It also might sounds confusing so hit me with any questions too!

 

Thanks, and Happy St. Patty's Day Weekend!

For these two images, one bitmap material would be the way to go.  Anything more random than that would be very hard to do except as you have already suggested.

I ended up going with a bitmap, I haven't split the face yet and added a variation of materials yet, but here's what I have so far.
