Default Grid on objects


I have a simple scene with a bunch of buildings that are represented by polygon boxes, as you can see below.

I need to have grids across all walls of the buildings to show the depth of space for composting later on. Basically, by having a grid on the walls, we can see how the grids get smaller as they further back in space.

I've tried using a grid material but the problem was that the grid got scaled to the building, so it isn't helpful.

Is there way to do this? Maybe as a render setting?

there's a tile procedural texture you can use - you can change the width of the seam to your liking
