Discuss Does anyone know if there are any Apps to help you with setting tiles? in the Tiling Forum area at TilersForums.com
Thanks Paul, That looks really great, I am guessing that it doesn't provide a list of material or the tile cuts required but I would think that you could manually count them. Do you find providing this visual helps you winning the job?For most tilers, it's rare that they will use any software for setting out. The will go and look at a job and providing they know what tiles are being used or what the customer's requirement is, they'll have a fairly clear picture of where the first tile will start and the last one will end before the even get the tools out the van.
Cad programs are good for diagrams and visuals but you'd need to bear in mind there are variables that may alter cut sizes etc when it comes to physical fixing.
And it can be time-consuming, but I have a lot of time on my hands and mainly use Sketchup with the Twilight Render plugin for doing basic visuals for customers.

Yes I am looking at developing a Tiling Layout design and Estimating App specific to the Tiling Industry which can be quickly configured for most jobs. See my thread. Thanks.Richard
Are you a software developer ?
No professional tiler needs an app, every job is different and many things to consider
I guess that a degree of inaccuracy could be incorporated in to the application. I would imagine that "quality" is something to consider when buying the tiles, and you could also mix and match to keep them aligned.Also depending how accurate you want to be with this as if done beforehand you may find tiles tile can be 10mm out as sizes are nominal
thanks for you constructive feedback, I will send you a copy of the app when it ready.View attachment 106730 I think a lot of people would consider an App if it was easy to use!
Anything that can help a designer/architect/builder/customer/plumber/tiler etc. generate interest and sales of tiles has to be a bonus for our trade.
On a job at present where the lady of the house provided a print out of a geometric design for me to follow!
