- a. Go to Navigation window, and choose a point of view where you can see the room from inside, and floor is visible.
- b. Open PATTERNS section in the Components window, search for “Staggered”.
- c. Select scheme called Staggered 3 (this scheme randomly mixes 3 different formats. In the lower part of the Components window select the Floor icon () and check that destination is set to “Current room”. Also check grout value and colour before proceeding.
- d. Drag the scheme and Drop it on the room Floor
- e. This scheme is just a neutral one (tiles are still missing), and we’ll soon replace neutral tiles (represented by those strong colours in the scheme as you can see in the next image) with the real ones. These schemes are parametric and dynamic, so their format will automatically adjust depending on the tiles format you’re going to choose. Now get to the COVERINGS section of the Components window, search the tiles you want by browsing collections, manufacturers and/or formats (alternatively, if you already know the name or the code, keep on using the Search field in order to quicker find it).
- f. Enable “Change similar tiles” mode , then drag the tile image and drop it on one of the scheme slots. Release left mouse button in order to drop the tile.
- g. Do the same also for the missing tiles (second and third) being careful of dropping the tile on the remaining missing colours (slots). In the Sample Project we have applied the same tile to the 3 slots, in order to take advantage of random repetition, but you can select different tiles and different formats with this scheme (while other schemes may force you to select compatible formats).
- h. Change the grout on the floor by clicking the right mouse button over the floor, and selecting command Change grout.
- i. If you want to move the tiles starting position, move the point of view in order to focus the new starting point. Click the right mouse button over the floor and select command Floor/Wall/Surface 2D position. Finally, move the green ball over the new starting point, and confirm this choice by clicking the left mouse button over it.
Let’s save project by selecting the button on top of the Ribbon () or clicking the keyboard buttons: Ctrl + S.
