Revit 2008

I have a stacked wall that is composed of a combination of brick and block unfortunetly the modules do not aling in the same way. (silly designer need to match an exiting design) I have a base of 3'-0" of block with a 4" top course, then I have 13 courses of brick so that is 2'-10 5/8" ish, then a four inch block course of around 3 5/8" ish. The problem is the brick pattern needs to start at the top of the 4" block wall. This equates to a 1/2 course of one brick shift upward. The pattern for the brick looks like it is starting at the base so I need to offset the brick pattern 1/2 a brick form the base. But after the next 4' block band we are now back on module but once again the next brick pattern needs to start at the top of the 4" bolck band. My experience with Revit tells me that a pattern is throughout and shifting of this pattern to what I need I do not knwo how to do.

Well I was able to solve this in a fashion which is rather complicated in my opinion. I had to add a pattern where I took the standard brick and offset it the 1/2 brick module (see below) create a duplicate matrerial type apply the offset pattern, duplicate the wall in order to apply the duplicate material type with the offset pattern and what a mouth full I just typed out.

Somethings just don't come easy. Is there a better way?

Acme Brick has a texture designer on their website but it's a bit clunky. You'd think they'd have seamless textures you could download but that should do the trick. 

You might also like to look at https://3dlibrary.rubysketch.com/entries/austral-bricks-wa-range .  There are hundreds of seemles textures they are free and the families on there are also good quality.

Hope it helps.
