Good information

We should convince Chief Architect to produce a "tile generator" along the same idea - it would be a great improvement to the program.

As far as I can work out - at the moment you can adjust the tile position in ray trace but not when you are using room fills which is a pity

The tiler needs to know where you want the tiles to start from, and where to end with half tiles etc - much needed work here by Chief Architect.

Lets hope the next version has a few more improvements!

Definitely agree with MM407p. One of the biggest things lacking in chief is a tile tool. The ability to load Multiple faces, ie 9 faces, into the material object when you create it makes such a huge difference in the realism of the rendering. You simply can't show a client a single face of a V3 or higher face variant tile and get a real representation. Being able to then access materials to input in a pattern generator would be huge, especially if it had a manufacturers grout catalog that was adjustable for size and color. As it is now you have to generate the JPG play with sizes and you can get it pretty close, but it can be  a time consuming endeavor and the results aren't always what they could be.

 

Side Note:

When using chief to determine things like Rough Framing height for a shower bench, niche, pony wall, etc. it can be a pain to calculate actual tile H, grout joint H, Shower pan thickness, shower floor tile thickness, finished tile thickness, thinset, and finished tile backer. When you do you can produce a wall tile layout without cuts due to vertical layout that is really awesome. Does anyone know an easier way to determine this?

      Hi all,
       
      I have a question about tile patterns and wall coverings. I have a shower wall on which I want (bottom to top) two full 12x12 tiles, then a 4" strip of a mosaic, then two more full tiles, another 4" strip, etc. I currently have the tile, which has a texture and a pattern, applied to the wall and wall coverings for the 4" mosaics. In the elevation view, the pattern of the 12x12 tiles is shown as if the wall coverings aren't there, ie directly adjacent to each other underneath the mosaic, instead of being two full tiles in between the mosaics. I've attached two photos, one of the results using the tile patterns, and what I want to achieve using patterns, but have drawn in using CAD lines as a placeholder. Of course, drawing lines directly on elevations is not a long term solution, so does anyone have any ideas? Am I missing a settings page somewhere? 
       
      Thanks very much
