mapping on a curved surface - new question

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Included are a screen shot and the file with a mapping problem. You'll notice that the mapping 'pinches' towards the middle of the object.

 

I am using "edit on face" -  "cylindrical". It does this with both a smooth and facetted version of the object. please help!

 

thanks-

 

Peter

Hi Peter, if you're using cylindrical mapping, then make sure the centre of the map is at the centre of the curve. I use "edit in 3d" in the edit texture tool, I find it easier.

Shift move the centre to align it making sure your guide snaps are on.

Here's a v7 version

Hi Peter,

 

Yes, as Des notes, you need to center the cylindrical mapping on the center of your curve or you will see "stretching" of the material.
