whoops- hit the post thread button a little to soon.

does anyone have a material to replicate this Hardi panel siding with the seams showing proud.

if not , maybe a suggestion in how to create such a material in render and vector view

Rob,

 

Are those recessed joints or proud joints?

 

If they are recessed, I outlined a method a little while ago using the Wall Material Region tool. 

Try doing a search.

 

If they are proud, use a slab, poly solid, etc.

I've done a few like this using molding polylines for the horizontal joints and slabs for the verticals. Worked pretty well. The reason I use molding polylines for the horizontals as opposed to slabs is that the moldings recognize the windows and door openings automatically, so you don't end up with moldings in front of openings (unless you move an opening after you put in your molding).

Material region tool works, whether joints are recessed or proud.  Very useful tool.

 

Multiple copy makes doing an array easy.  Things like this, board and batten, and more, all now possible for good looking 3D.
