Hi,

I have a wall with a darker brick soldier course running along it.

To show this in the elevations (in wireframe) I would like to give the solder course a darker shade.

I can't seem to do this, as the soldier course has a vertical line pattern to show the bricks, and so I cannot add a solid fill too.

See the attached image, I've achieved what I need by drawing a filled region with a solid pattern with opacity, but I really want to avoid waisting time drawing loads of filled regions.

Is there any simpler way of doing this?

 

Cheers.

Why are you showing an elevation in wireframe? If I were doing it, I would do an elevation with "Consistent Colors" as my visual style. Then just make your brick colors appropriate to whatever you desire. 

The example I attached shows that just doing a shaded view doesn't help in elevations which is why you want consistent colors. I also used a light gray and dark gray for the brick but this certainly applies to any color.

I did think of doing that, but I found changing the materials in that way changes how the brick looks in all views. Ideally I want 3D views to show with colours correct.

Is it possible to do what you suggest only for the elevations - some sort of override?
