UVW texture issue
on Feb 18, 2019 at 8:30:16 am

I'm trying to apply a carbon fibre texture to an object with a bend deformer, and UVW Mapping. The texture works great on one side of the object, but I'm getting some very weird issues with the texture on the other side of the object. Please help!

I think I've traced the issue to the extrude tool. The object I'm trying to apply the carbon material to works just fine as a flat poly shape, but once it's extruded I'm getting really weird results with the materials carbon weave pattern on one side of the object.

...aaaaand I've fixed it!

Turns out it was an issue related to the UV map generated by the extrude. Solved by deleting the UV tag from the object, applying the material with a different projection mode (cubic in this case) then selecting 'Tags > Generate UVW Coordinates'

Everything working perfectly now.
