Shower Tile Design

Recommended Posts

Ok. Using X7 now, and having a bit of trouble getting my changes to plan materials in a shower setting to show up in 3d views. It seems that the changes show in 2d elevations, but are not visible in 3d views. I need those changes to actually show. 

 

I am changing the patterns by selecting the poly solid > materials > select material > plan materials > edit,  then > general tab to change size of tiles and > pattern tab to change 'pattern source' to brick. 

 

My changes appear to work in elevations but are not being applied in the 3d view. Is there something that I am missing that would fix this? I do not understand. Help?

There are a lot of variables in this situation. If you post your plan file you are going to get a faster (correct) answer.

Patterns only show up in vector view, so when in 3D change to vector view. If you are in standard view then you are seeing the Texture, not the Pattern.

Yes changing the Pattern , doesn't change the Texture which is what you see in 3D views , you can change the Texture size , it works for some but not all as you need to change the Texture too probably in a program like Paint or Photoshop as a lot of tile comes with premade grout lines etc and if the texture was Stacked you cant change it to Brick pattern that easily.

 

you can find a tile texture in the library that is what you want size wise  and try changing the material with the material painter perhaps.

 

Dal Tile library was update on Monday and there is a Bonus tile library too.

      I've used CA for years and AutoCAD since 1985. (Yeah I'm old).
      In Florida we do a lot of Block house plans. (CMU) 8x16x8 concrete blocks.
      Other than manually placing block patterns. Does anyone have an easy way to do wall fill patterns to show the ACTUAL CMU BLOCK Pattern in plan view. 
      It would be great if it actually placed filled cells required for all window/door openings and corners. Any suggestions? 
       
      Thanks

      Many of these I have personally made or modified. Some of the content may have been created by others for which I will give credit. Many of the materials have free licensing, so no credit is needed. 
      Some of this content may slow down your program as I have a high powered machine and often times use complex and high resolution textures. I will try and give as much detail as possible. Use at your own peril!
       
      No but seriously dig through and enjoy, I've spent a good number of hours ensuring the quality of these symbols and will update them periodically- so CHECK BACK IN! and PLEASE GIVE A LIKE FOR THE POST OF ANY SYMBOL YOU LIKE, IT ENCOURAGES ME TO GO BACK AND REFINE/REDUCE/OPTIMIZE THAT SYMBOL.

      I just downloaded Wayfair's catalog of furniture but I found that when I apply a different fabric texture from the CA library it looks terrible.  It's as if the scaling is WAY out of line. Anyone else have this problem? I really want to use their furniture objects because the CA library is outdated, but they don't behave well.

      Hello, 
       
      I am very new to Chief Architect and I am trying to find the best way to create a shower dam (the short 3" wall on the floor of a shower that prevents the water from escaping out of the shower), This wall will also hold the glass walls and doors that the user will access the shower from. Is that created by doing a pony wall, with a 3" lower half or is there a better and easier way to create this?
       
      NOTE: I am using version x11 Interiors (not the PRO version)

      Is there a way to download a picture of a tile from a manufacturer's website and create a material?  I am trying to use the attached pics of tiles for a backsplash in a kitchen and have followed the instructions on the videos, but cannot get the tile to align properly.  I have attached pictures of the two tiles I'd like to show the client, and a picture of what happens when I try to use the material.
      Thanks!
