Pattern Generator functions


Filter function
The filter function lets you search through the selection of patterns using various filters. You can filter based on floor or wall application, dimensions, color, color combination, Mosa series, and grid. Do you know the pattern code (PT), old pattern code (PM), old grid code (BS, GS, etc) or current grid code (GR)? Then you can search directly for these codes through the search engine. Press reset to set all functions to default.

Range of patterns
The ‘Range of patterns’ function in the upper right corner lets you sort the patterns in the search results overview according to color, dimensions, or Mosa series.

Pattern
In the Pattern tab you can adjust the dimensions of the wall or floor, the frame on the worksheet (offset), the joint colour, and the unit of measurement (centimetres or inches).

Info
The Info tab provides information about the Mosa series, pattern code, grid code, dimensions of the wall, joint color, and the ordering and packaging information for the tiles used in your selection. The information automatically adapts to the changes you make to the selection in real time.

Export
The export tab lets you export specific file types of standard and custom made patterns to use in your project. You can export the selection to an image for your mood board or a tiler instruction for in-depth information for processing of products. To draw your tile design into you own CAD or BIM software use the texture based exports. For help regarding the export and import process for your software see the help button in the Export & Print tab.

Multiple
Click on the tile in the pattern you would like to change. Or click on the color in the menu left. All the same tiles will be selected. So you can change multiple tiles at once.

Single
Select one or more tiles in the pattern. You can select multiple tiles by holding the Ctrl key and click.

Warning: Only when exporting the selection will the single tiles be visible. ("Export & Print -> Export selection")
