    Creating ceramic tile using a picture of the pattern

    Anyone have an idea of how I could do this?

    1) Find an image. Save it as jpg or other common format.
    2) In Options, Rendering tab, use the "+" symbol to add the folder where you saved the image.
    3) In Materials, duplicate a material, and name it, such as "My ceramic tile".
    3) In the Rendering tab of the Materials dialog, click on the drop down arrow next to color, and select "image". Browse for your image file.
    4) In the Graphics tab of the Materials dialog, make a line based pattern, and use Texture alignment to adjust the pattern to the image.
    5) After closing the Materials dialog, edit the properties of a floor type, adding a finish layer, with your "My ceramic tile" material. Or simply paint a floor or wall with this material.
    6) Make a perspective, and make a render.

    See illustration.

      Hi Alfedo,

      Thanks for the instruction.
      For some reason when I render the finished output does not reflect the tile image that I have used

        There are a number of reasons it might not be appearing, the top culprits are likely:
        - The material is created, but not actually applied to the element (or is applied to the wrong face)
        - Phase filters are applying a graphic override

        What element should have the material? How is the material applied (and is it applied)? What phase is the element on? What is your phase filter? What are the settings for the material?

          Make sure the image scale is correct as well. When you're inserting the image to the material there are dimensions you can set to tell revit how big to make it. If you swap inches for feet or meters for mm, it can get pretty distorted.

            My guess is scaling issue like Chris says.



            Hope the image helps!
