In this article you will learn how to tile a shower box with a different pattern than the one (if any) you already applied on walls.
Let's suppose we have a bathroom with some wood tiles on the floor, and we want to lay down some mosaics in the shower corner.
As you have seen, there is no tile on the walls, but the same concepts we're next to see apply also in case there are materials already applied to one or more walls of the scene.
In order to tile the shower corner, we're going to use Tiles Layers, (also called Areas that can be tiled).
[If you want to learn how to create additional Tiles Layers, refer to this article]
As a first step, let's get to the 2D View of the first side of the box. If you are in 3D view, you can do that by clicking/tapping the wall and selecting command Front view).
Then, proceed drawing a new Tiles Layer: click/tap on the wall and select command Add tiling area.
As the shower box's size is W=130 (~51"), D=70 (27" 1/2) , H=200 (~78"), the layer to be placed in this wall will be sized 70x200 (27" 1/2 X 51"):
Click OK, then place the layer in the correct position, as you can see in the next image:
The new layer is still empty. So open the Tiles section of the Components window, search for the material you want to tile the shower corner with, drag and drop it over the red layer. This is what you will get:
Repeat the same steps for the remaining sides of the shower corner:
This way you will tile the shower corner with the selected mosaic, as you can see in the next image:
Finally. If you need to select and operate again on the Tiles Layer, you cannot click over it from the point of view of this image. The Application, in fact, will intercept the shower box first, and not allow you to touch the Tiles Layer.
So move the point of view until you will see the layer without any object in the middle; then click over it in order to select and start modifying it.
