Allow Model Patterns in Material Cut Foreground and Background

Allow Model Patterns in Material Cut Foreground and Background

Please allow model patterns to be used as a material's background or foreground pattern!

 

This would save a lot of work for a lot of things but my primary use case as an Architect is improving /reducing drafting time for wall sections. 

 

As a specific example - Brick and CMU in sections either have to be drafted manually or you have to be resigned to just showing the fairly generic (even if you make a custom one) drafting pattern. If you could use a model pattern for this you could get as specific as you want (assuming you're good at making PAT files that is).

 

Here's an example with both brick and CMU of how close you can get to detail components using model patterns.
