Pattern Generator functions
The filter function lets you search through the selection of patterns using various filters. You can filter based on color, tile size, surface, series or color combinations. 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. Change the order of your filter or search results to help you pick the right pattern for your design.
You can either select tiles from the edit tiles menu or by selecting them in the pattern. When selecting within the pattern you are able to select all tiles in the same sizes and color, just a single tile or all tiles you already changes singly with the same color. If you want to pick more tiles, select while pressing command (cmd, Mac) or control (ctrl, windows). Tiles that have been changed singly can be reset back to the default color in the pattern.
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.
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 BIM or CAD 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.
