There is a useful feature in order to tile niches and objects very quickly. Let’s suppose you have a niche in the wall like the one you can see in the next image:
If you click the right mouse button inside the niche, you can select the command Floor/Wall/Surface 2D. You will approach a new view (look at the next image), where you can see the exploded schema of the niche: the internal area, together with the side, top and bottom faces. All in one view.
Using this view tiling the niche is just a game:
1. Double click the area you want to tile, in order to make it active;
2. Select the tile you want to apply, set the floor tiling mode, drag&drop the tile in the selected area;
3. Double click a new area, and tile again
That simple! If you want you even can drog&drop the tile without double clicking the area: the Application automatically recognizes the destination area and makes it active.
You can do the same also for objects: click over them with the right mouse button in the Modify floor/wall tiling window, as you can see in the next image, and select command Floor/Wall/Surface 2D.
The first view allows you to see the object from top. Tile the top surface, if you want. Then click the right mouse button outside the object in the grey area, and select command Sides.
You will now see the exploded object, and you can tile face by face. Just remember to double click the surface before dragging and dropping the desired tile from the Components window.
