Hi!

I would like to make a wall with attached elements on it that they are repeated like a pattern.

My method (not succesful) was to make these blue elements (Photo) in a face based family.

Then I made another face based family  like a bigg extrusion (bigger than my future project walls) and on this big extrusion I imported my blue elemts in the patern I  like. My idea was to import the extrusion with the elements on it in my project and on my walls and then changing the dimension of the extrusion all the blue elements outside of it will dissapear. 

Ofcourse nothing happened since there is no connection between the blue elements and the extrusion.

Can someone help me on how to make it function? Is there a method to connect these blue elements with the extrusion so att they disappear if a part of them have nothing  behind them, or there is another better method to make it happen? 

Thank you in advance.

We never model elements like this because they don't work at corners, openings, roof lines and they make the files too large.  This is a siding material so we use a pattern that uses a bump file to create a 3D visual effect.  Search how to make model material files.

Thank you. I dont know how I could make it with a pattern and a bump file that will show like the example in the photo. They are like fish scales. One under the other element above. The construction is very small (7 x7m) and all the openings are made where the external elements finish (there are no Γ cuts at the external elements. This particular model was sent to me like IFC file from an Archicad user who used single elements to cover the external walls. However every element (roof, floor ,walol ecc)was a ''generic model'' and I cant work with it. I must start all over again in Revit.

This is a fish scale model material and pattern available from Hardie.

Thank you .I saw it. I will try to change it if I can, to be like mine. Problem with the model patterns is that one cant see it in realistic view.

The surface pattern (fill pattern) is only visible in Hidden Line and Shaded View .

If you want a texture in Realistic view, you'll have to create a new appearance asset and set an image.

Thank you! I made a photo that I can use in realistic view. The effect is quite similar but not exacttly the same especially with the shadows a ''fish scales'' patt can produce.

That appears to be just a standard shake shingle.  You can find 3D materials like that at sources like this one:  https://renderman.pixar.com/pixar-one-twenty-eight
