I have the roof shingles, but I am not sure how to build something in RC  to be able to populate my roof.

HI,

If you would like to just create an array from your patch you can do something like the attached style. It uses a closed spline to set the size and shape of the array. To get the overlaps between patches you'll notice that I've used padding values. There are different padding values used for the left, right and default segments so that I can avoid slicing on the sides.

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any further questions.

Many Thanks,

Paul

I appreciate it. I tried some things, however, I am a newbe!

Hi,

Don't worry about the warning message - the included style is fully "2.7 compatible" (it doesn't use any "future feature" ;)). Anyway, please feel free to use the attached version.

Best regards,
