      All of those are relatively easy to achieve. But you can also actually model it by changing your roof type to sloped glazing and manipulating the mullion spacing and profile to replicate your desired tile. It requires some work and it isn't perfect but it's a start if that is what you want.

        I wonder, might you have a small or simple sample of such a thing to post? I would really be interested in seeing how that would work.

          1. Model the tile that you want. Make it simple shapes
          2. Make a Lined Base Generic family and import the tile family.
          3. Array the tile along the line based family. Set the array count as a parameter. And use a simple formula to stretch the array. Set material and import.
          4. On your roof make Model Pattern line on your roof surfaces in the directions that you want to go and then set the distance from center line of tile to center line of tile.
          5. Then select the family and use the Pick Lines with Place of Face highlighted pick each line on the roof plans and the tile will array.

          Now it takes a while but man it renders so well! apply the same steps with the ridge tile and hip tiles.
          :beer::thumbsup:Spanish Tile.rfa just a bit of help!

              Where this came from was an old thread on AUGI some years ago. I'm not exactly sure who it was that posted their results.

              Attached is the demo file that they had uploaded. Gave it a try myself from scratch and it works pretty well if this is what you're after...

              EDIT: Did some searching / digging and it looks like it came from SkiSouth on the AUGI forums. So credit to him for the file.

                Nice. That seems like a very quick way of geting the Tile "POP":thumbsup:

                    If I recall correctly, you don't want to change the panel to profiles (I don't even know if you can). In fact, you want to choose 'None' for your curtain wall panel in the type properties. You want to space the mullions at a distance where they line up right next to each other. The profile for the mullions is what you want to change.
