Hello everyone, I am attempting to create a custom tile material. The individual tiles are 1.772" x 11.024" x 0.315’ You can see in the attached file that I have an original tile component that consists of two individual tiles aligned end to end. I copied that component 4x’s to make a section of tiles 2 across by 5 rows deep. I made that 2x5 section a group. Then I made the mat which is 1/8" larger that two -2x5 tile sections and 1/16" thick. I created another component named “Mat-1” Then I placed both tile sections onto the mat.
Basically I’m attempting to model accurately a specific tile and create a material swatch that I can use on an interior layout design of a bathroom. I am doing this properly or is there another way to create custom materials?
I have tried to find training resources/videos but have not found anything that fits what I am trying to do. Perhaps someone can point me to a few links.
You will see in the attached model that I pulled the mat component up so that I could colorize the the mat simulating different grout colors. This may not be the proper way to accomplish the ability to alter grout colors.

I added a single tile in which I have rounded the edges.
