Looks like you didn't remove the surface substituted by the pattern from 59349.

Thanks Willy.
Could you expand a little on how I do that and where in the process that happens?
I'm a complete novice with regards to navigating non-template part editing.

May be your s01 subfile still includes the from face, that does not need to be there.

EDIT: Confirmed, your s01 Subfile contains the front face where the pattern is.

I did not explicitly write that in my notes. This face has to go as it leads to overlapping polygons. See the samples here:
The GREEN one misses (correctly) the front face in the sub-file, the RED one is done like yours, where faces overlap. You can see immediately in the editor viewport that something is wrong:

[attachment=4012]

This leads to the following render: (Much better result at the GREEN Brick)
[attachment=4013]

I have attached the sample of the relevant sub-file, it needed the line

1 16 0 60 10 -60 0 0 0 0 -60 0 -20 0 box4-1.dat

further broken down to be able to remove the front face (quad), see the file in the attachment, in LDPE it looks like this:
[attachment=4014]

As a final note: The pattern could be cleaned up a bit more to reduce the number of polygons, see the sample screenshot:
[attachment=4016]

Please post your 59349s01.dat file.
