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

Accustudio

I know this is hard to believe, but Accustudio is over 20 years old. It has been quiet for a couple of years now at the site. I'm looking to hand it off to the next generation. Is there anyone interested in working on the site and eventually taking over the ownership of it?See More

Peter Milner replied to Peter Milner's discussion AR Studio texture editing
"Okay. Another question on textures: In nXt you can layer different textures and bump maps to create a more complex material. For example, the Oak veneer material (image attached) uses two bump maps: one for the grain and one for the flecks. In…"
