There is no "Template". You can resize any material just using the "Adjust Material" tool :https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-01006/customizing-a-library-material.html (which stretched to the size you want would probably look odd in camera views). Or you can find, download an existing image of a tile pattern (Ideally within a reasonable sameness to the one you want. Then import the image using the provided tools in Chief (see this help article for more data on that process: https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-00767/creating-a-new-material.html

getting the Pattern for Vector views is fairly easy , you can make a new material , set it to Tile ( for Stack bond) or Brick ( Brick Bond) and enter the sizes on the general Tab or use one of the free Pattern File Creators Online (.pat files) and use that.

 

the hard part is finding suitable seamless textures to import to make it look good in Standard views or Raytraces, though there are a number of Websites who do free free Seamless Textures. If you can use Photoshop or similar you could make your Own too.

 

have a look at this quick plan .....open the saved cameras ...you can save the materials to your library but they aren't great for Standard Views as I don't have the needed seamless textures.

 

Hope CA will catch up to Modern Trends with this kind of thing soon....

do you mean the Pattern file for Vector Views?

 

CADHatch has a Free Excel file you can download to make many standard Pattern Files as well as some textures etc.

If you mean Standard View or PBR then the Texture must be Brick Patterned (a seamless texture).
