Custom Material

Hello. I would like to know if it is possible to make a custom material. I do understand how to change the color of things in the existing material library. I often use the ‘wood siding’ from the materials library but this has a 9"-10" siding reveal. I am interested in siding with a 6" and 7" reveal. Can I somehow make a template for siding with this reveal and add it to the library as a custom material?

You can import an image to use as a material–I do this quite frequently. Or maybe if the existing siding texture is otherwise suitable, simply resizing it would take care of your issue. I just resized the white siding texture to 25" x 25" and get pretty close to the 6 in. reveal you want.
