Surface pattern on walls - cut window

Hi,

 

I've got a brick wall. surface pattern : horizontal stripes. Cutpattern: solid. Shows just fine.

I place a window in that wall, cuts it nicely.

 

The window has a little setback of 7cm (or 2,2").

 

Viewing 3D I notice the setback renders as a solid (cause it get's 'cut'). However I would like see the setback with horizontal stripes.

 

Anybody got a workaround for this? (or no workaround but a decent solution).

You should be able to get at least 2 sides of the pattern to wrap by editing the wall type > and enabling one of the Wrapping At Inserts settings.

 

Video Example: http://screencast.com/t/taI6sswZb


Please let me know if this helps this condition.

 

Thank you,

Ty Ryan,

 

Your screencast did solve my problem. And created a new problem.

The exterior wall is wrapped (as I told Revit to do) however the wrapping altered the connection wall-window. 

 

Current version: not wrapped at inserts.

This is the wrapped version exterior, which gives good 3d looks but horrible maserony.

When wrapping, the family is used to determine this condition.  For example, please see the following post:
