How to add tiles on the ground ?

In Simeo - Edito, it is possible to add tiles (i.e. cobblestones) on the ground with the following command: Insertion > Ground tiles.

You may choose several options:

  • to pave the whole terrain
  • to pave under the selected items bounding rectangle
  • to pave a given rectangle on the ground

I all cases, you must set the size of the tiles in X and Y (cm) and their thickness (e.g. 1 cm). You may change the tiles colors.

The tiles are built by various methods in PaveGround (makePavement, makePavementUnderSelection ()…, can be used directly in scripts). They build a single GWA object, write it in a file in tmp/, then add a new EditoMockup based on it in the scene.


  • when choosing the 'under the selected items' option, you will be told if the selection contains a single item (possible mistake)
  • if the selection is empty, the option is disabled
  • the process may be long because the ArchiTrees of the selected element are reloaded to calculate their accurate bounding box.
