Hi,

I have a building elevation which is displayed in hidden line, the elevation has two types of brickwork, one for the whole building and the other is for details and accents around the windows and doors.

Both bricks are shown with the 'Brick' pattern in elevation.

I would like to make the detail brickwork show slightly shaded in elevation as currently, it is impossible to distinguish between the two brick types on the drawings.

I can do this easily by applying a solid fill, but I then lose the brick pattern.

Is there any other way of doing this? I don't want to manually have to draw filled regions over the brickwork - which is the only other way I can think of achieving what I need.

Thanks.

Why not make the two as different materials, then change the surface pattern/cut pattern of one of then to what you desire.  I do not believe that there is a way to have your pattern and a shade show up in your material.  You may have to make a custom hatch pattern to do what you are looking for (but im not sure if thats possible)

Create a new brick material called 'Brick Detailing' or something, then edit the surface pattern colour in the Materials Editor to your desired shade.

You could change the general wall brick pattern to a grey line the same way & leave the detail brick pattern as black, this way the details would show up bolder against the general wall patern
