An hour long look at UV wrapping in TurboCAD Pro.


This video presents UV Texture Mapping/Wrapping in TurboCAD V21  Pro using LightWorks. It is more informational than it is tutorial, although it provides a pretty in-depth look at this function. UV mapping is an ideal texturing format for 3D PDF files. See attached PDF.

Thanks, Don.  Some good hidden tricks in there-- like how you can use one image to map the faces, but switch to different materials (with similar wrapped images) without having to remap anything.

Now I'm wondering if anyone has tried out the 3D PDF plugin for TurboPDF for purposes of editing 3D PDFs that have been exported by TC.

Happy New Year...
