Any body have a model of a house brick, I'm going to build a small garden wall and want to have ago at drawing it first. Also want to use it to workout all the materials
All you need is to draw a rectangle the size of the brick and extrude the depth and add the brick appearance or draw your wall and add an appearance of a brick wall.
Adding the appearance can be done a few ways, one SW has brick appearances that can be applied for one brick or the whole wall. You can also search Google images and save the pictures as a jpeg file and drag right on to the model face..
Hi Kevin and welcome to the forum.
Have you tried searching 3D ContentCentral
There are all sorts of things to be found there. Don't forget also that google can sometimes be your friend.
Ok thanks, I've already done that, I wanted something that looked more like the real thing, but that's ok
The best results are to find a wall or a brick you want the model to look like, take a high resolution photo and add that to your part, no reason why you can't make it like you want...
Another route is to model the wall, then apply a brick wall texture. If the wall is big, the brick pattern may bog you down.
Does anyone know why the forum is allowing me to select the correct answer?
Is this a mixup, or does it have to do with the "assumed answered" at the top?
lol - you must me really special -
I have the same option, have seen this before but didn't know why.
Will there be a v12 engine there some day?
Yeah possibly, I wonder what the maximum file size is for uploads lol.
Hmmmm, how curious, I have the option to unmark it............
Yes, same here. I wonder if we are about to have a massive battle as to who's answer is really correct?
HHEHHEHEHEHEH - your it
Actually it's a test to see how fast we can gain points and prestige in the SW Forum community, same as debacle as..................
Let's not rehash that....... dues were paid!
We're all cows in a way, we still like to chew the cud..........
I am unable to add the brick appearance to a wall formation. Does it have to be separated by face?
No - it doesn't need any separation from the face, are you trying to change it at the Assembly or Part level??
What are you doing to account for the mortar, or are these dry-fit to each other?
I am at the part level. I haven't made the assembly yet. The orange is a direct click and drop of "Brick" and the rest is done as "Brick", but I changed the color to white. Dennis Dohogne the appearance is strictly cosmetic. I am not worried about mortar.
Actually, I was referring to accounting for the thickness of the mortar, more than its appearance.
I guess I don't understand the relevance. Can you elaborate?
I just put "brick dimensions" in Google and one of the first things shows a Standard brick to be 3.5" x 2.25" x 8". Mortar is typically 1/2". So if you are modelling whole bricks mortared in place then the net brick size is 3.5" x 2.75" x 8.5". If that doesn't matter and you are just looking for wall dimensions with bricks cut as necessary and you don't care about the number of bricks then . . . never mind.
Ah, I understand now. Yeah, I'm basically trying to wallpaper bricks to give a better visual to my audience. I'm doing a room layout for equipment. The amount of bricks isn't needed.
