Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Mapping materials, part of AutoCAD: Rendering.
- So if your mason can lay brick…in an angle like that, that's one awesome mason.…You better keep him around.…If not, well, you're gonna need to map the materials.…I'd like to fix this brick.…What this video is gonna do is…it's gonna go into the mapping of the material…that's assigned to the mass.…Mapping simply means adjusting.…Remember, Autodesk sometimes gives functions…misleading names.…So to get started, I'm gonna jump into my Archway drawing.…I'm gonna go to my Visualize tab.…
Under Materials,…I'm gonna do down to Material Mapping.…I'm gonna hit the dropdown here,…then I'm gonna go to Box.…Now I'm gonna select my archways…and I'm gonna hit enter.…Now, if we hold down the shift key…and the wheel button, we'll notice that…this box is going basically at the angle…that the brick is going at.…So what I wanna do is on my view cube,…I'm gonna click on where it says, "Front."…Now let's look at our command prompt,…type R and hit enter for rotate.…
Now we need to just find which one we want to rotate.…I'm gonna hover over that green ellipse.…
