Curved Surface Textures in SketchUp [VIDEO]

Post by Fletch » Sun Feb 21, 2010 3:24 pm

How to Map a texture correctly/seamlessly on a curved surface in SketchUp:
Paint material onto curved face
Turn on View Hidden Geometry in SketchUp (would be good to have a shortcut key for this)
Using Material Tool in SketchUp, hold the Alt Key to get the eyedropper, then sample the image of the first face of the curve with the paint bucket+ALT key,
then let go of alt and paint the adjacent face, then sample that face with alt, then paint ...

Some say there are no stupid questions. I'm in the habit of proving those people wrong.

Thank you so much, Fletch! I have to model a planet for someone, and this issue has been driving me crazy, trying to figure out how to do this.
