AutoDalle is a paving planner that creates random paving patterns for mixed size paving slabs or floor tiles. This kind of laying pattern is called Opus Pattern or also Indian Sandstone pattern.
Since 2008, AutoDalle is the only software that can create random paving patterns without cuts for all forms of terraces and without limitation on the number of dimensions of slabs.
The Opus Pattern is obtained by disposing randomly different kinds of rectangular paving slabs such that the joint thickness is always the same. The following picture is an example of a tiled patio designed with the software.
This patio is tiled with 4 sizes of paving slabs.
The image on the top of this page gives you two examples created by the software, the paving slabs are randomly arranged and no cutting is necessary to follow the shape of the patio.
AutoDalle will obviously allows you to know exactly the quantity of flagstones needed to complete your paving.
AutoDalle is able to optimize the use of packs and calculate the quantities needed for each type of paving slab.
You are an individual or a company? You are looking for patio ideas? AutoDalle is the software you need to create all tile layouts for your terrace.
Examples of paving slabs patterns
Here are some pictures showing examples of paving slabs patterns created with the software.
With its excluded areas functionality, the software can process all forms of terraces, such as L-shaped terraces, paving around a swimming pool, and even more complex forms. The video below shows you some examples of the use of exclusion zones.
How to create a paving layout with AutoDalle
The realization of a paving layout is simply done by following these few steps:
Select a paving model in the predefined list or create your own model by the definition of each slab size: AutoDalle is not limited in the number of paving slabs sizes.
Define the size of your terrace (18 m x 10 m max., 59 ft x 32 ft max.).
Start the process and then the software perfectly adjusts all paving slabs and creates a random paving pattern in just a few seconds.
The random patio layout generated by the program can be manually modified by swapping group of paving slabs.
If necessary, you can apply a cutting template to the paving layout.
The 3D preview function gives a realistic view of your terrace pattern.
Finally, print the paving report, and you can also create a DXF file to import the patio pattern into your favorite CAD software.
