Pavers

Tried to challenge myself to put together these pavers with a single object. Is it possible? [Max 2016]

Hi,

Both styles are possible.

I would suggest to follow this tutorial regarding making almost any pattern.

Hexagonal patterns are easy to make using built in macro fox Hexagonal shapes.
See file attached for more details how I done it. If You have any questions please ask.

Thanks, so it looks like in the end you can't make that 3x3 brick layout with a single brick. And for the hex you have some insanely complex (and awesome) macro for the offset. Thanks for sharing the file! Super helpful

Theretically You can but it would be quite complicated.

hah, fair enough - and I'm sure after all that macro scripting work, you wouldn't be able to change the brick out on the fly.
