Editing wall material to concrete in plan view

In floor plan view how do I make a wall have a concrete texture inside instead of the default (criss cross)?

Under Wall Properties, Edit>Structure>Materials--change to Concrete for the Cut Pattern.

 

The "criss-cross" pattern is typically for Concrete Masonry Units ( block), so you should really use a different Wall Type

and name it Cast In-Place Concrete, then specify the correct Material and Fill Pattern.

Thank you. I have made a new wall how you said, changing the material to cast-in place concrete instead of concrete blocks and on the preview for the wall it is perfect but when I draw the line on the floor plan it still has a criss-cross pattern. I have attached a picture where you can see how the wall looks in the properties preview and on the floor plan it  is highlighted.

Thank you,

Yehuda

In Wall Properties, check if there is a Coarse Scale Fill Pattern.

 

Then in your view, set the Detail Level to Medium or Fine.

 

Does it now have the Concrete Fill Pattern?

I set the wall to no pattern and then to concrete pattern and they both still have the criss-cross. It seems like the criss-cross is a default and the only way to change it is to override each individual wall.

Check if the Material is set to "Default Wall"

 

Go to Manage>Materials then look at Cut Pattern.

 

See if your wall's Material is really using Default Wall Material--or recheck the Coarse Fill setting under wall properties.

I went into the materials and the cut pattern is set to concrete. I'm not sure how to check if it is set to default wall. I have attached an image with the walls I am trying to edit just left of the browser.
