Online Guide: How to create a dégradé tile pattern on your wall

Give your room a unique design by using a layered dégradé pattern on your wall


In order to create the desired dégradé effect on your wall, you must first open the navigation window and drag the desired dynamic laying pattern onto the wall that you want to design.

Once the dynamic pattern is on the wall, select the tile you want to use from the Components window and drag it onto the laying pattern. Make sure that the “Change Similar Tiles” button is selected at the bottom right of the Components window.

The pattern automatically adapts to the format of the selected tile thus creating a uniform pattern along the entire wall. To proceed with the dégradé effect, you must work from within the 2D window. Right click on the wall and select the Wall (2D) command.

Once the 2D window opens showing the wall, the next step is to delete the unwanted tiles. Use the Ribbon to select the Coverings -> Modify -> Delete command and begin selecting with the mouse each unwanted tile (highlighted in blue in the next image).

Once you are done selecting all the tiles to be deleted, right click to confirm. You will now have the desired result shown in the next image.

You can now return to the Navigation window to see the resulting effect in 3D. The finishing on the wall might be different than that used for the pattern. To make them uniform, open the Materials section of the Components window, choose the material that you want to place on the walls (for example, white plaster), and drag it onto both the customized wall and the other walls of the room.

With the same technique, it’s possible to customize laying patterns however you like, for example, in less uniform ways such as in the image shown below.
