Is there a better way to make brick corbles than with a series of members of increasing width?

Regards

Individual members would give you the best shadow effects but you could also apply a generic member and apply a jpg or bmp image to the member that shows the varied lengths.

Do you mean where the entire length of a wall corbels out 30mm (say) each course for the last 4 (say) courses?

If so, create a new member, Type=custom, deselect Uniform Scale, Select Profile, Add a new one, 30<0, 85<90 repeat 3 more times, 120<180, 340<270
Back to Element Manager, dx=120, dy=340,
Appearance tab, map a brick texture sized & mapped accordingly
Once it's been inserted & elevated, check the mapping again . .
iirc, if your custom profile was defined in an anticlockwise direction, you need to insert the custom member in the same direction otherwise the corbel will be "inside-out"

Thanks Merv

That is what i was after - will use in next time rather than modeling in Turbocad Pro and exporting the ,3ds in.

I assume this will miter the corners too?
