AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Hello,

I need help, with NXT I don't know how to attach a graphic (logo) on a taper shape sign.

Somebody can help me?

Is it possible?

See the file I attached

Thank you

Cylindrical mapping.

Thank you George but it canot work it is not a cylinder it is a like a cone. See the jpeg I attached previously.

With the cylinder command the size of the circle bottom diameter must be identique to the top?

Let me know if I miss something

Merci for your help

Sorry Eric, I didn't noticed there was attachment. I don't know how to do it in nXt, but it is really easy to do it in Blender for instance. Then just export the object on OBJ format and insert it in nXt as textured model. The only problem on that method is that you must be somehow familiar with Blender and its UV mapping procedure.

I don't how work Blender. I find a easier way... I will had with CorelDraw.

Thank you for the tip.

Am I missing something here? cylindrical mapping wont work for you?

something like this?

Yup ;)

bad example. I used the first long sign image I found and copied it 3 times to fit the circumference. .The graphic does not tile seamless. 

Another test using a grid so you can see how setting the decal radius larger than the object projects to fit.

Still a slight gap where they join.

Thank you guys, I thought cylinder wouldn't work for that shape.

Have a nice weekend

mapping decals

I think this started with AutoCAD 2019:While in the process of mapping a planar decal, it is not possible to pan, only zoom.This can make the process of picking points a bit tricky sometimes.I'm currently using AutoCAD 2020 on Windows 7.See More
