    Brick Pattern Not Aligning

    Rob - thanks for the tip. This seems a much better way to go about this. Kevin

    Because that's what I thought I had to do to put it in my library for future use. Also, didn't realize I wouldn't be able to adjust the texture once a symbol. Still learning and appreciate all your help! Finally got the roof ridge sorted this morning! Kevin

    That's what I thought. Doesn't work once the object becomes a symbol.

    Great idea! That's what I'm going to do.

    That's clever. Not sure how you'd get the cap though. Thanks again for the help. I'm guessing world origin for materials changes when you change wall heights making anything with fixed UV's out of alignment. I'll have to remember to do all the detail stuff towards the end.

    Thanks Ryan. You're saying what I was saying. Yes, I have tried painting the symbol - no luck. I suspect Eric had to manipulate the material by adjusting material definition... I will try recreating the symbol with it in it's proper elevation and replace the existing posts.

    That's an older version which I have corrected. When you moved it up, did you not see that the pattern didn't align? If so, how did you correct it? You say "... with a new texture applied and aligned." Did you change the symbol or merely use the material eyedropper? I have tried these methods to no avail. Thanks for your input.

    They are most definitely sitting on the wall - not in it. They are symbols that I created. The brick was aligned on these symbols before I changed the height of the crawl space which is when the problem started. Could it be that the texture is now UV projected which is why it won't move?

    Brick Pattern Not Aligning

    I have built some brick posts to act as newels for a porch railing system. When I first placed them, the pattern aligned perfectly with the adjacent brick walls. Many iterations to the file later and that is no longer the case as can be seen in the images below. I have tried assigning a copy of the brick pattern to these posts and moving position of the texture and the pattern won't move. I understand the global tick box under material def's to imply that the texture is projected in a cubic fashion from one fixed coordinate on all objects in the scene. Is this correct? If so, how is it possible that the placement of the brick texture has moved on my posts? How do I get things looking nice again? I swear once I get one problem solved in Chief, a slew of new ones surface as a result of this problem solving. Thanks, Kevin

    Crawl space vents?

    Think I got it now. I had some wall types other than Brick-4 and Brick-6. I deleted the foundation, changed walls to proper type, and auto-rebuilt. Thanks!

    Crawl space vents?

    Thanks Eric. Understand about auto foundation, however, when I make those changes, I now get a big mess everywhere. Should I just delete the foundation, make my walls changes, and then turn on auto-build foundation? Fortunately, I have made backup copies. Kevin

    Crawl space vents?

    Is this an alternative to what you show in the video or am I to follow the video, rebuild the foundation, and then place the vents?

    Crawl space vents?

    Which I have and changed first. It is still pushes the walls outward. I will attach the latest version of the plan in a .zip file (getting rather large at this point) in a subsequent post. I watched the video 3 times and have no idea what I'm missing. Thanks, Kevin

    Crawl space vents?

    It still pushes all the walls outward by 3.625" and I lose my windows. Were I to approach it this way, I probably should have started with these walls as defaults.
