I am very frustrated about trying to duplicate a texture to an object that I got right the first time. The object in question is the large object in this drawing. It is supposed to be brushed stainless steel. The brushed texture is lengthwise across the object.
This is what I wanted. Except for how things look at the curved end on the left.
When I was working on a second similar design and I tried to add the same texture to the stainless steel it ended up looking like this with the brushed finish in the wrong direction. I applied the same texture file. I can’t figure out why it came out so differently than the first time. This is what I get.
The odd part here is that the texture looks better on the rounded end on the left.
How do I get this to look right, with the brushed finish like in the top model, and the rounded end like in the bottom model.
