    Default Assigning material problems

    Hi there,

    I am having difficulty with AutoCAD 2006 with regards to rendering. I am currently creating a 3d dwg of my house and as such am assigning brown bricks as the material for the walls.
    I have adjusted the properties to suit the scale etc and am attaching the material with a new UCS created (to allow the material to be drawn correctly) however CAD keeps assigning it based upon the world UCS and not the new one I have created and applied.
    I have tried attaching and generating this with and without the 'auto axis' button toggled but still it refuses to generate it the brick through the correct plane.

    In an attempt to trick CAD I rotated the building through 90degrees along the y axis (assuming we are looking at it from a plan view) and assigned the material again which gave it correct appearence however when rotated back again the generated pattern returns back to it's original state assuming the x,y,z is as the world UCS.

    Anyone had this problem or have a solution??
    just shout if I am being a bit unclear.

    sounds very much like a mapping issue to me, have you tried going into the mapping properies and changing the plane direction there?

    click the mapping button, choose your solid model, and click adjust co-ordinates
