A seamless  texture with slate  arranged in a hexagonal pattern


A seamless texture with slate arranged in a hexagonal pattern. The image represents a physical area of 2418 x 2094 mm (95.2 x 82.4 inches) in total, with each individual unit measuring approximately 15.74 x 3.93 mm (0.6 x 0.2 inches). The joints are filled with mortar and are 0.19 mm (0 inches) in width.

Slate is a stone product widely adopted as a cladding material within architecture and construction. Slate is most commonly used as a roof shingle or tile, due to its durability, natural waterproofing, and flexibility when cut into individual shapes. Natural slate adopts a natural mid to dark earthy hue, and in addition to roofs, can be used in interior or exterior flooring, stairs, walkways, or wall façades.

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.
