Hello there, I’m hoping someone out there can help me?
I’m fairly new to Rhino (on Mac) and I’m struggling to work out how to wrap a 3D texture effect that I’ve created around the sides of a solid shape.
The shape is a solid letter ‘W’ (facing upwards) and I want to wrap the vertical sides of this letter (not the top or bottom faces) with a 3D snakeskin texture that I’ve created - I want the final solid to have 3D snakeskin scales around its sides not a flat rendered 2D snakeskin effect.
Here’s a screen grab that I hope shows what I’m talking about:
I’ve previously used ‘CreateUVCrv’, then ‘PlanarSrf’ and then ‘FlowAlongSrf’ to wrap the texture around a simple cylinder that has 1 surface to flow along. However I can’t seem to make this work on a solid whose vertical sides are composed of multiple adjacent surfaces.
Can anybody suggest a how I achieve this effect? I’m sure there’s a simple solution but I’m pulling my hair out trying to figure it out?
