I am a Rhino beginner and have issues to get a jpg on a polygon mesh. The picture shall be skewed to fit on the mesh.
Here is what I did jet:
I used rhinoterrain to import a mesh from google earth, which also extracts the related picture as a jpg. I get a nice 3D mesh with the perfect fitting picture on it. So far, so good.
Now I wanted to create this again using a pointcloud. So I imported again from GE, but this time I got the point cloud, which I also get without problems. Next step was to create a polygon mesh from the pointcloud. This mesh now has a constant colour and I want to to lay down my jpg on this mesh now. For that, I choose properties - material and add the jpg to the texture. But nothing happens to my surface.
So then I checked the texture mapping in the properties and there was no channel activated (it is also no texture mapping channel in the first import, where it works fine). I managed to get some texture on my surface with the spheric or cuboid texture mapping but I did not made it to have the jpg on the mesh.
I have this issue in general with all polygon meshes I create from a point cloud…
So, what am I doing wrong?
ps.: sorry for my english, it is my second language
