gismu x1 is a tile/cake [shape/form] of material x2, shape x3, thickness x4. A tile is a 3-dimensional object, relatively uniform and significant in the 3rd dimension, but thin enough that its shape in the the other two dimensions is a significant feature; 'city block' is conceptually a tile; polygon (= taplytai or kardytai - shaped like an approximately-2-dimensional block, lijyclupa - a loop composed of lines). (cf. bliku, kubli, matci; karda, for which the 3rd dimension is insignificant, bliku, kurfa, matci, plita, tarmi)

The road pavement contains tiles.
lo tapla poi farlu fi le drudi cu porpi lo ve'i spisa
The tiles that fell from the roof broke into small pieces.
lujvo t1 is a roof tile of material t2, shape t3, thickness t4. Cf. drudi, tapla.
gismu x1 is a card [small nearly-2-dimensional shape/form] of material x2, shape x3. (x3 shape default rectangular); See also matci, tapla, plita.
gismu x1 is a mat/pad/mattress/pallet [flat, soft, dense form] of material x2. Also mattress = (kicymatci). See also kicne, tapla, karda, ckana.
gismu rafsi: kub x1 is a cube/regular polyhedron/polygon of dimensions x2 (def. 3), surfaces/sides x3 (def. 6). (cf. kurfa - needed for 'cube', bliku for a physical object; tanbo, tapla, tarmi)
gismu rafsi: kur x1 is a right-angled shape/form defined by set of vertices x2, dimensions x3 (default 2). Also rectangle, square, rectilinear; square (= kubykurfa, pitkubykurfa), cube (= kurkubli), rectangle (= clakurfa), rhombus/diamond (= sa'orkurfa, sa'orpitkubli). See also bliku, kubli, tapla, salpo, tarmi.
gismu rafsi: pit x1 is a plane [2-dimensional shape/form] defined by points x2 (set); x1 is flat/[smooth]. Also: x1 is even/planar/level. (x2 is a set of points at least sufficient to define the plane); See also xutla, sefta, tapla, karda, boxfo, pinta.
gismu rafsi: bli x1 is a block [3-dimensional shape/form] of material x2, surfaces/sides x3. x3 sides/surfaces should include number, size, and shape; also polyhedron (= pitybli having flat/planar sides/surfaces). regular polyhedron (= kubybli, blikubli), brick (= kitybli); See also tapla, kubli, tanbo, canlu, kojna, sefta, bolci, kurfa, tarmi.
gismu rafsi: tam tai x1 [ideal] is the conceptual shape/form of object/abstraction/manifestation x2 (object/abstract). Also pattern; x1 is the mathematical or theoretical ideal form, while x2 is an object/event manifesting that form; e.g. circular/circle-shaped (= cukseltai) vs. circle (=cuktai, while cukla alone is ambiguous); model (= ci'ersaptai, saptai, ci'ersmitai, smitai). See alse nejni, te marji for physical shape, tapla, bliku, kubli, kurfa, cukla, mapti, morna, sarlu.
