A seamless metal texture with aluminium arranged in a stack pattern. The image represents a physical area of 4283 x 3046 mm (168.6 x 119.9 inches) in total, with each individual sheet measuring approximately 300 x 4278 mm. The joints are filled with a solid fill and are 5 mm (0.2 inches) in width.
Aluminium is a common metal product used within architecture and construction, owed to its versatility, strength, and environmental credentials. In particular, aluminiumâ€™s strength relative to its weight makes it a material of choice for windows, doors, cladding, and finishes. In contemporary architecture, aluminium can adopt a range of metallic glosses, colours, or anodised treatments, and can accommodate brushed, polished, or stained finishes.
This texture uses a stack pattern. The stack pattern is the most basic of the standard patterns in architecture and interior design with each unit simply stacked one above the other and no horizontal or vertical offsets. When used in masonry construction, materials arranged in a stack bond typically require additional reinforcement when compared with a standard running bond.
This image is seamless, meaning it can be tiled repeatedly for use in architectural drawings and 3D models. It can be used as a SketchUp texture, Revit material or imported into Photoshop for use in 2D illustrations.
