Byzantine Tile Pattern

Recommended Posts

In the material dialog box I have made a material (texture) for Byzantine Tile (it is a particular shape of tile) but I can not find within Chief a pattern that matches the tile so the pattern will show up on elevations.  If I do a camera shot the material shows up.  If there is a byzantine tile patter somewhere in the *.pat files, where?  If Chief does not have a pattern then how can I make and add a patter, please?

 

Attached is the *.jpg texture for the materiel.

This style is also called Arabesque , if there is nothing in Chief's library I would try some of the AutoCad Forums / Sites as the Pattern Files also work in Chief.

 

you could start here :  Google Images of Arabesque Tile

Thanks but I looked but found nothing.  Lots of other.  Is there any way in Chief to make and load the pattern?  I have a line drawing, I just cannot make it a *.pat.

I don't think so unless one of the Tile Manufacturers in the Library has a similar tile and has done a .pat for it.

 

there are online Pattern Generator you could look into...

If you have Autocad too ? maybe this will do it ?

I tested this one out ^^^ and it seems to be very easy to use and quite powerful.  I've tested some of the others in the past too but they were much more limited and much less intuitive.  If you know somebody with AutoCAD, they also have lisp routines that can can convert line work to patterns.

All,

 

Thank you all for your help. 

 

I think I will try to find someone with AutoCAD to make a *.pat rile.  I saved the dwg drawing of the pattern as a *.dwg from Chief.  Hopefully someone can open this and save it as a *.pat that I can use in my drawing.

Did you take a look at Cactus Stone> Tile>Natural Stone>Style>Kacy White Arabesque?

 

EDIT 

I'm sorry, I just realized that there isn't a .pat file attached to this material. My Bad!

Thanks Cheryl , I didn't have the X10 version of that Library, it now is split into two with Stone and Tile.

 

It is Cactus Stone> Tile > Natural Stone > Style > Kacy White Lahaina  

 

The Tuscany Light Lahaina is also Arabesque Style...

**** Unfortunately they cheated , there is no Pattern File so the Material is no good for Vector Views ,

below I changed the Colour to White and Blended it with the Texture to get these Pics.

Here it is WITH the pattern.  Its not perfect but its close.

White Arabesque Tile Fancy 2.calibz

 

Note that I removed the Normal Map because it wasn't quite right.

 

And here's the pattern file if any of you need it for anything else...

Arabesque.pat

Thanks Mike.... it was the best I could to to make it "seamless" as the Pic above was not shot 100% square on to the Tile ...I don't have Photoshop for doing Bump and Normal Maps etc so I just used the Kacy White Lahiana Material and changed the Texture.

 

Did you buy Hatch Kit? is that how you got the Pattern file? , the free Excel Generator works well for square or rectangular tiles.

Wasn't sure I would ever use it that much so I haven't as most of the Patterns I make as Square or Rectangular , and for most Clients I use Standard Views anyway.

 

It amazes me that CA lets these Manufacturers do as little as possible in their Libraries , eg no Patterns or Search attributes or like the Issue with the REV-A-Shelf Catalog ... ie everything is one Material.

Yeah, not me...I use vector views, technical illustrations, and line drawings pretty heavily.  Actually, sometimes I use them very specifically for tile layouts and so the pattern can be pretty important to me.

All,

 

I got side tracked and just got back to the forum.  Thank you again for all of your help. 

 

My new effort is to find two files for waterfall that have disappeared originally from jaimanyi, waterfallsplashA.bmp and waterfall attempt2 copy.jpg.  I will start another line.
