A seamless metal texture with zinc arranged in a hexagonal pattern. The image represents a physical area of 1079 x 1168 mm (42.5 x 46 inches) in total, with each individual sheet measuring approximately 150 x 100 mm. The joints are filled with mortar and are -15 mm (-0.6 inches) in width.
Zinc is a widely used metal in architecture and construction, dating back to ancient Roman times. For the past 500 years, zinc sheets have been used as a material for roofs, facades, gutters, and detailing, favoured for their durability and resistance to corrosion. Zinc remains a popular material in contemporary construction, with dark grey or black hues offering a sleek, minimalist, modern aesthetic for cladding, panels, and interior finishes.
This texture uses hexagonal tiling. This hexagonal pattern contains regular hexagon shapes with each row offset in order to interlink with one another. It is one of the three regular tilings of the Euclidean plane and is a significant structure in nature.
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.
