I want to add a roof object to a model showing the finish roof material as flat concrete tiles. I have an image of the concrete tiles (see attachment) and I want create a rendering of the model with the concrete tile pattern. I took the Roof Asphalt Shingles material and duplicated it. I then changed the name to Roof Flat Concrete Tiles. I modified the image for the asphalt roof and changed it by adding the concrete tile image. I applied the new "material" created to the Finish 2 layer in the roof object. Any other suggestions on how I may be able to set the roof object  properties so it will render with the concrete tiles?

 

I would also like to be able to generate a section of the roof (eaves detail) showing the flat concrete tiles in section (similar to the eave detail attachment). Any suggestions on how to do that in concert with the first inquiry?

Is it possible to add "sweep profile" to a roof as it is to a wall? Is it possible to apply the concrete tiles as a mass objects to sweep along the roof object separately? I am trying to exhaust all possibilities.

Did you set up the sample size?  I don't see a pattern assigned under graphics to control your model pattern - you need that as well.

Yes I did set that up. I set it up using the same pattern that I attached to the first message for this inquiry.

I think I got it. I pulled an image of the flat concrete tiles. The image is 5 tiles wide and 9 to 10 tiles high. I did research on the tiles that says they are 13" wide and approximately 14" exposed with a 3" overlap. I used this information to set the scale which is 5'-5" wide and approximately 10'-10" high. This gives an approximate accurate number of tile courses on the roof. Attached are the images requested as far as the settings for the roof materials. I also attached an image of the model with the flat concrete tiles installed.

Please advise on how to improve or correct the model.

Did you assign a model hatch pattern in the graphics tab?  This pattern is associated with the model pattern so that you can adjust it.

 

You can read about this alignment in your HELP.

I did add the model pattern. I created a new pattern for concrete tiles and set the cross hatch pattern with 13" wide vertical lines and 14" between horizontal lines. Interestingly the graphic image does not match the lines but this is probably a scaling issue.

I take the time to post the sections you should read in your help - you should at least take the time to read them.
