The predefined paving models

To facilitate the use of the software, a list of predefined paving models is automatically downloaded and kept up to date. This list is regularly extended with new paving models.

The notation used for the model name is:

  • The first two letters "cm" or "in" indicate if the dimensions of the slabs forming the model are entered in centimeters or inches.
  • The first value corresponds to the smallest dimension used for a slab.
  • The second value corresponds to the largest dimension used for a slab.
  • The third value gives the number of slabs in the model.
  • The latter value is an index numbering the model


For example, the name corresponding to the model composed with tiles (in cm): 28 x 28, 28 x 42, 28 x 56 is cm_28_56_3_1.
