Materials in 2013, Is there a way to stretch the image?

I am creating a carpet tile family that is sized at 18"x36".  When I load the image from the manufacture into the material I give it the 18"x36" size, but get something different in the family and project.  See image attached.

 

I want the red lines to be at the bottom of the family.

 

I tried to change the material image size to 36x36" and it only scales in the y direction.  I also tried to offset the image so it fills the family area and that doesn't seem to work either.

 

What am I missing? 

 

Thanks for the help.

The family you sent us doesn't have any image/texture for us to test it here.

I am not sure how you created your family but I am attaching a new one I created.

Make sure that your image is in the right size so your material sample has the same size.

If your image is 1'6" x 3'0" it means that the image will repeat itself every 1'6" x 3'0" , regardless the size of the rug.

If you want to have different sizes of carpet I would suggest you to create different families.

The image can't be streched.

Hope that helps.

You can use the "Decal" tool (Insert>Decal) . This way you can uncheck the lock and resize the image to any size you want.

If you want to have it in a family instead, please upload the family.

 

Hope that helps.

Thank you Fermanda - That did the trick.  I switched out the texture you had for mine and all is good now.
