Hey all, I'm looking for either a hatch pattern for split face block or a tutorial of sorts showing me how to create new hatch patterns. I'm currently working on a project where the design intent is to have split face block up to one height and precision block above that. Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Kune

Has anybody created a wall family that has a 'rough' face to it, ala split face block?

There are plenty of sites on the web explaining how to write a pat file. Personally i prefer to just draw the hatch pattern as a DXF then using Hatchkit to convert this to a pat file. As for the split faced block, you can't give your wall a rough look as such. You'll just need to set the wall up to have a thickness that allows for the width of the splitfaced variations... It would be nice, but i could imagine it killing performance if it was implemented.

Thanks Mr. Spot. Your probably right about the rough face killing the performance. It'd be nice to have though. I ended up working it out by creating a new wall type with the split face accurender but instead of the natural 7.625"w I made it 9"w. Just enough, I think, to make it pop. I could probably get away with 8.5" come to think of it. Thanks again, Kune Post edited on 2006-08-03 18:27:03
