Designing a ceiling design with the correct height and width is essential for creating a unique ceiling tile.
To start, create the correct depth of the tile and align the base and sides.
This will allow you to align the tile perfectly against the wall and avoid any possible mistakes.
Next, create an angled surface with a width that will be the same as the floor of the room.
In the photo below, the wall is set on its edge.
You’ll want the floor to be the size of the wall to allow for maximum height.
If you want to add a wall, set it at a 90-degree angle to the wall.
Once the angle is right, use the angle adjustment tool to change the height of the surface.
Once you’ve made the angle correct, adjust the angle and then repeat.
The height will be adjusted based on the angle of the edge.
Finally, create a smooth edge on the floor with a wall that is roughly the same size as the ceiling tile, then place the tile face down on the tile.
You want to make sure that the edge of the floor is smooth, so the tile faces down onto the floor.
The following image shows a floor tile that is about 15 inches wide.
If the tile is a little bit longer than the ceiling, the tile should be set slightly higher.
If not, it should be lowered slightly to create the proper height.
To set the tile, align the bottom edge of each side of the face and then use the slope adjustment tool.
Once the edge is aligned, add the tile to the floor using a slant adjustment tool (right click, then click adjust slope) to increase the height.
Once you’ve created the tile with the right depth and orientation, you’ll need to align it again using the slope tool.
This time, set the angle so that the base of the base matches the ceiling.
The angle should be the exact same as for the tile height.
Once again, align both sides of the foot of the lower tile with a sloping slope to create an even appearance.
Now, align and adjust the surface with the slant adjust tool.
If needed, you can tilt the tile up and down to align.
If desired, you may want to turn the slope angle to either side of vertical or horizontal alignment to create extra height.
When the surface is set correctly, the angle should match the ceiling’s height.
Next comes the important step.
When you’ve finished setting up the ceiling tiles, you should add the wall using a smooth slope.
This step allows the tiles to stand on their own, without any interference.
Once complete, the final floor is ready to use.
You can use the following step to determine the height that will fit the wall, but if you choose to use the lower ceiling tile as the base, you need to set the floor height equal to the base height.
To set the height, right click the tile in the tile set, then select Set height.
The tile set is now complete, and you can then set the ceiling height and angle to match the floor’s height, then use a slanted slope to add additional height.
This is where the fun really begins.
To finish, use a smooth angle to align all the edges of the tiles.
Once finished, you have a finished ceiling tile with floor that looks a little like the original ceiling design.
The trick here is to adjust the angles of the two sides of your tiles to match as well.
As you can see, the ceiling is now the height for the wall that was created from the base.
Now that you have your tile set up, you’re ready to finish.
If your ceiling tile has a slight slope, it’s fine to add the lower surface to the lower floor.
If so, adjust your angles accordingly.
The tiles will still stand perfectly on their side.
Once everything is set, the two tiles should match up perfectly.
You may want the lower tiles to have a slight rise or fall, but you can’t be too careful as the tiles are going to sit right on the edge if they’re not.
Once everything is finished, set your tile base with the tiles and then remove the tile from the wall with a flat file.
You should now have a tile with your floor.
You’re now ready to add an accent color to the ceiling using the ceiling accent color tool.
