One method is to shoot an elevation and create Material Regions that cut into the finish layers:

Another is to define a Material and use a Normal Map to create the rustication, but it's generally more difficult to get the joints to line up where you want them:

you do it manually for each panel right?

 

If you're using Material Regions, yes - you create and place each joint individually.

Multiple copy makes it easier to place on 8ft and 4ft joints etc  , corners can be an issue still though....

 

there have been a few threads on doing this , so try a Forum search eg on Hardie Panels or similar Terms.

Try this thread:

 

Michael did a video that nicely illustrates how to make these panels for each wall.

Did this with cabinets (since that's my schtick). Started with them just as panels but decided on deeper to get the recess at the window which is better will depend on how you are really building. (minimum cabinet depth is 1/16")  Biggest advantage is control of the reveals and modlules.

Disadvantages learning curve for the deeper cabinets, overlap issues when shallower and of course this doesn't work well for a material list (but you maybe can convert a cabinet schedule to something useful?).

The two window gray window area cabinets require some custom symbols with offset origin and locked stretch planes. Fiddled with this for about 1-1/2 hrs though a good portion was guessing what went where and getting the windows/doors respectable even though they still aren't all that good.Had the first facade with flat cabinet together pretty quickly.
