Tips&tricks: mix covering materials on the floor

Learn how to draw a floor with multiple materials (e.g. laminate+tiles)

Double floor tiling 

In this lesson you will learn how to create a floor using two different materials, as you can see in the next image. At the end of the lesson you can find a link to see the movie that shows you how to operate with DomuS3D®.

Let's start using an hexagonal pattern.

Select the “PATTERNS” tab on the Components window and select “Hexagonal 01”. Drag it on the floor and change neutral tile into a real hexagonal tile..

Then select “Polyline” command from the CAD toolbar of the Ribbon, and draw the area you need to tile using a different laying solution. We suggest to use automatic snap on the vertex of the hexagonal tile. You can close the shape you are drawing using the "Close" command available with the Right click of the mouse.

Select the polyline border, click the right mouse button over it and select “Create tiling area” command.

Once you have created an area that can be tiled , you can specify the pattern you want to use in it. Select “PATTERNS” tab and select the “Staggered” pattern, as you can see in the image. Activate "Floor” mood and drag the pattern on the floor.

Keep in mind to activate the “Floor” mood before dragging the pattern (the Floor mood allows the scheme to be applied all over the destination surface). Select “COVERINGS” tab in the Components window and activate “Change similar tiles” button (version 2016 does it automatically for you).

Choose the tile you need and drag it on one of the available (coloured) slots of the pattern.  

Now do the same for the second tile of the slot.
