I’ve come across a problem when trying to assign mapping coords to an imported mesh. If I create a mesh or extract a mesh from a Rhino object I have no problems assigning say a planar mapping and the material with the map renders fine.
However, when I import a mesh from another app in say 3ds format and I apply the same material after I assign the same planar coords, the object doesn’t render the map. I can make visible the mapping widget but the bitmap doesn’t render. I never had to do that because I usually either create the objects in rhino or I merge a mesh object which has been extracted from a Rhino object. So after using Rhino for years, it is the first time that happens. I tried flipping the normals and also rebuilding them.
Is this a known problem or is there some other thing I need to do?
Your help would be appreciated.
