BLOCK PATTERN 1/3 RUNNING BOND

Recommended Posts

Hi all just want to know if there is a way of unlocking the scale setting for a 1/3 running bond pattern so I can adjust to  suit either brick or blocks.

say brick size 162mm high x 290mm long and optional...

block size 350 high  x 1000mm long

hi thanks for the reply.

Yes could use this setting but it restricts the proportions depending on what the original pattern size was based on.

the scaling operates on proportionate sizing. not particular to the individual block size hence the 2 different material sizes posted

If I could get to the width and height scaling dimensions that would work.

You may need to look into creating your own custom hatch pattern or maybe one of the material guru's will know a trick.

 

Is "Pattern from Texture" a possibility ?

You should be able to create a hatch pattern from a free hatch pattern creator.

From memory there is one called CADhatch but do a search as there may be others.

This will create a .pat file.

This can then be imported into Chief using Import Patterns (PAT).

The hatch pattern will then be available in your user library.
