    Wall type customization

    For our project we are making wall types with a custom tile pattern. We want to be able to distinguish colored tile bands in contrast to the rest of the tile. We want to be able to have the tile band have the 4" vertical lines, as per usual, but also have it have a gray background so it is clear that it is a distinct band.

    See Picture attached. The lines in red is what we want to show in black: i.e. tile lines on top of gray fill.

    I recommend editing the PAT file so that hatch is different: Show the actual tile sizes, and then show a sand pattern as well.

      you could try a stacked wall though they get a little messy. I often have a call out on the "plain tile" of an elevation to a larger detail and put in masking regions for different colors or tiles.

        Why not using stacked walls or compound walls, and create a duplicate of the material with a different color? A different background color could be shown in Consistent Colors (visual display). See attached example of a compound wall that does that. Ah, the lines can be aligned as well in all three sections of the wall, for customization.

        Hope this helps.

            Because for a lot of firms, printing in color isnt an option. So editing the hatch pattern on one Tile Type (which then gets put in one basic wall in the series, or in the stacked wall) achieves the same graphical clarity without needing color.
