Br'cks - Advanced Procedural Bricks [Free Download]

Like I promised, I made a tutorial on making a custom brick shader with this:

Cheers :slight_smile:


You are who I want to be with procedural materials! It’s all so powerful and amazing and your mind is warped just right. :wink: Between you and the guy who broke-it-down for wood floors a few years ago, I’m becoming very confident.

Have you ever published your rig specs? When I get deep, my video card and computer tax my patience. And forget Volume - I can’t render more than a postage stamp in size.

Thank you for keeping the open source spirit of Blender Foundation alive and gifting such powerful know-how.

These are the types of procedurals I love to see in Blender! Excellent work! Blender’s node editor leaves much to be desired in terms of usability, tools, and debugging.

Well done, looks amazing

Well done, impressive and thanks for sharing

I’d be interested in a in depth tutorial, even a paid one. I think a lot could be learned from your process that would be more valuable than just a finished end product.

this is amazing, now that we can see the potential I think some focused addon can boost power of this workflow and be a valid alternative to substance designer.

next up substance painter! One can dream

Fantastic work !
Very inspiring. Congratulations !

I so need to dive into how you did this. I’m working on a Hexagon precedural shader… and loosing my mind :slight_smile:

Hey Thommes this is a great way for parallel tiled bricks. Is there a way to adjust ur basic brick shader to get a herringbone style. Now it is limited to a certain angle and brick width.

Great work on the nodes man!

I can’t believe you think you kept the node setup to plugin to the brick shader “simple”. My brain hurts after watching that.

Hello, Simon!
Thank you for sharing your great shader setups. They are amasing!
Can you help me with my setup, based on your bricks
This is my ref and result

I don’t understand, where is im’ wrong, i try any compositions but no luck(
Is this really possible? or not?)
This is my file
panel-cliff1.blend (3.6 MB)
Friends, thank you all if you can help me)

i like the ‘free’ concept when the blend cannot be downloaded for free :rofl:

too bad :frowning: i’ll have to find by myself how to make bricks…

Happy blending !

It is free. In the gumroad link, you can type 0 in the box.

Hi @Akikun

sorry but no :stuck_out_tongue:

Be sure i wish i could give a penny to this but… my budget is quite tight :wink:
I’d say 0$ and i got to do things like this: Carcassonne Medieval city

well it’s just my own problem :wink:
Maybe i’m dumb ( hehe i sometimes think about it ^^ ) but when i choose 0$ and click on ‘i want this’, nothing happens. If i set 0,1$ and click again i’m asked for my credcard.

Maybe i must have a gumroad account for getting free downloads ?

Anyway am on the road for something different in a matter of pattern.

This proc shader is really awesome but far too repetitive ( each bricks use to be the same size ). I need more random joints all over my walls… But as it’s out of topic i’ll make a separate topic on this :wink:

Happy blending !

You don’t need an account to get free downloads. I tried on my side and it works.

When you type 0 and click on ‘I want this’, you’re supposed to get a prompt asking you an email address. After entering your email address, you get a confirmation that the ‘purchase’ is succesfull and a message is sent to your email address with a download link. Make sure your browser doesn’t block prompts.

I can attach the blend file here but I’m not sure if BA’s guidelines allow it. Maybe @bartv can shed some light.


You can, but we have a MB upload limit.

@bartv , thanks for the clarification. The file is small enough to be stored on a floppy disk, so I guess it’s fine.

@pitibonom here is the file (or files, they are two of them).

Ow then it’s my bad ??? :hot_face:

Why the hell don’t i have this popup ?
Then my apologies for this ! I disabled all ad-block and it still don’t work with my opera :confused:

I’ll have to try with another browser.

Anyway, thanks a lot @Akikun for the files ! i get them right away :wink:

Have a great evening and happy blending !
