TilingApp – FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I add an object?
Select the Work Area tab and press the “+” button in the top left of the screen. You can now amend the object size and finally locate the object within the work area.
Does the number of tiles include re-use of off-cuts?
Nope, it is assumed that the off-cuts cannot be re-used.
What is the “tiling area”?
The “tiling area” is the area of the wall minus the area of the objects, this is a handy calculation when you are considering material requirements.
Is it ok that my objects overlap?
It’s fine, the TilingApp will consider this in the calculations.
Does the TilingApp support measurements in feet/inches?
No, not at the moment, although this is something we are considering for future updates.

No, not at the moment, although this is something we are considering for future updates.

Can I add an object that is not square/rectangular?
