Tiles again!

Recommended Posts

Anyone know why my material may be coming in upside down — notice in screenshot that it is correct in Library. Also making extra tile rows that are not in my

jpg exported from Adobe ID. I have unchecked Retain Aspect ratio and input exact size of wall that tile goes on in tub area. Also did that in ID creating image 

at same size as wall. For clarification, gold tile meant to sit at tub with diagonal decos and off whites going to the ceiling.

Will it rotate?

It’s not upside down. It’s just the offset that makes it look upside down.  just like in your other thread, adjust the horizontal offset.

Ignore previous 2 entries. I'm looking at how to edit and hope it helps!

Yes it rotates. 

if it looks the way I want it to in the Plan Materials box, how do I know how to rotate it or what offset to enter?

For the hell of it, I rotated it 180 and it still looks incorrect.

Try adjusting the offsets.

Could you give me a clue so I know why I'm doing what I do? I'm looking up "offset" but don't understand the term in regards to the pattern looking upside down to me.

See your image just above -- Offset and Angle.

The pattern repeats infinitely up and down and side to side, so it's just a matter of you scootching the pattern down to where you want it using the vertical offset.  You could move it up, or you could move it down, either way you'll get the result you want... just need to play with the distance to get it where you want it.

Ok I get it and will experiment. Just lower the tiles by the offset to get them where I want.

Thanks again DzinEye!

Well that is just too damn much trouble — experimented with all kinds of numbers but didn't ever get it to move to the right place.

Sometimes I wish we physically drew again and this wasn't a necessary "time saver" evil!

At least I knew what to do then to get what I wanted.

Thanks for attempts.

I'm curious about this. Could you attach your material?

 

Right click on it in the library and choose Export Library. It will just export that single item. Attach the .calibz file.

I'll be very interested to hear what you find out and not surprised at my ineptness or not!

Would be nice if this process were easier.

 

Is this what you are going for?

Yes. And that is what you see in my first screenshot at right in the Library.

Am I making it more difficult?

Since your material is sized correctly, try Stretch to Fit.

You need to repaint the material after you change it's definition (vertical offset)

I have every time I change the vertical offset but I'll copy yours even though It's still not showing up correctly.

Are you applying directly to the wall?

 

Place a Polyline Solid on the wall (that's what I show in my image) and apply your material to it.

 

Might also try a Custom Backsplash, or Wall Material Region.
