- [Voiceover] In Chapter 6-09, we're going to…finish off the materials to the cavity and the cavity walls.…That's the brick and the block.…Because we applied the material directly…to the geometry in the brick,…it's the same brick with the exception…of these special ones, that has been used throughout…then most of our work is done…and similarly with the blocks, the above-ground blocks…also need no extra treatment.…The things that we need to work on…are the mortar, that runs the horizontal mortar,…so if we just take block mortar and apply that…to that bit then that's that done.…
We've got this series of individual special blocks…that we made, so double click to edit the group.…Then with the block, we can just individually…pick these ones so we're applying that material…to the wrapper, which covers the whole thing.…The mortar: that's okay.…That's already been done.…With the bricks, we've got the mortar to deal with,…so brick mortar.…
Just apply that to that…and then double click.…We could triple click here;…we've got more than a couple to do,…
