UV Mapping on a curve surface
Read 232 times

Hi everybody,

I try to put an image on a curved surface, representing a curve screen, maded with Simple Extrude tool with no success.

The curved surface is represented by a succession of vertical boxes and I can not apply the image over the entire surface

Do you have any idea to do this ?

I attach the epack file

Thanks in advance

Since the curvature is very shallow, I'd use Arbitrary Plane wrapping (entire image on the entire object) instead of fiddling with UV Mapping.

Jean,
The problem is the object that you are trying to UV map is segmented (many facets)
You need a single facet solid object,works like a charm.
> see attachment, the left object is using a png the right object is using a jpg

Hi Dean

How can I do a single facet solid object with TC ? I will try it when I will be at home

Thanks for your response and have a great day !

Bring up the Facet Edit command and click on the object where the image will be.  If you find one facet (or a selection of them), you can select them and apply the image.

With Primitives, such as a Sphere or Cylinder, and ACIS Solids with curved surfaces, you will have limitations when editing Facets.  You can get around this by 3D Slicing them to provide the curved surface that you want to map the image.  Alternatively, you can Explode them until they are TurboCAD Surfaces (a collection of Facets that approximate curves).

Simplest way is to use "3d thickness" on a Arc.

Don't use "Join Polyline" on the profile to be extruded, activate the "Use Compound Profile" option in the Simple Extrude tool, then extrude. The four segments in the profile will be treated as if they're one object, but you won't get all the segmentation like you currently have. From the looks of it, you used two splines and two lines. This is what I get using the "Use Compound Profile" option.
