Custom Tiled back-splash Brick Pattern

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I am attempting to lay out wall tile in a Brick third pattern in X10.

I have captured the texture (new material 45) from a screen and applied it to the top custom back splash.

I have then copied the plan material and sized the texture (24x12) and the custom pattern.

It then renders in stacked tile pattern.

What am I doing wrong?

In order for us to see your material you need to include the texture source file. Common ways to do this is choose File/Backup Entire Plan/ with the active plan opened.

 

I'll show you a 2 row brick pattern to illustrate the solution:

There is no offset tool in CA, you must create the offset in your texture

                                                                                   use Pattern and Texture above to make your own material if needed.

Hi Kbird!

So the custom pattern does not array the tiles?

A third party is required?

I was hoping for a third pattern not a third party!

 

Also: What is my vector size?

1.) No , it is simply a line drawing for Vector Views.......

 

2.) No , but it's a whole lot easier with the free Excel File.....  see above.... I did it for you and made a new Chief material ..... :)
