Material in rendering

I tried to apply a material, which was a ceramic on a column.
This column is repetitive on a module.
I always find thet the ceramic tiles shift from one column to another, cause i think it related to an origine like fills.
I don't know if there is a way out of this.
Thank you
PS: Check the columns from the left to the right in the attachment file

I think you need to set the fill origin (using the special menu, somewhere at the bottom of the list on V7) for each column individually, or perhaps set it on one column and then copy that column to replace the ones that are already drawn.
You can find more details about the special menu on escribe, but maybe someone has already copied the process to this site to make it easier to find

Are you using AC 8.0 or 8.1? If so, you are in for a treat.
  • View your model in the 3D OpenGL window in shaded mode (materials visible)
  • Select the surface that you want adjusted
  • From the Edit menu select Align 3D Texture... and then Set Origin
  • Click on your surface where you want the material origin for that one particular surface
  • Repeat until satisfied
You'll see that you can set orientation there as well - rotating materials as needed. Not applicable with your tiles, but perhaps in some other project.

HTH,

Can you please post a screenshot of your tile material settings? It seems to me that your tiling is set wrongly.

Which ArchiCAD?

ArchiCAD since 4.55 ... 1995

Thanx for you all.
It was solved the same way that Karl mentioned.
Thanx again.
