Join William Everhart for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding artwork to a 3D shape, part of Illustrator: Package Design.
…With our 3D shapes in place, it's time to wrap our…graphics around that shape and bring our package design to life.…Remember all the work we did in the earlier lessons.…Fitting the design to each panel, and then converting each panel to a symbol.…Well all of those efforts are about to pay off.…So first I'm going to select my 3D object here.…Now notice that it only displays the original rectangular shape there.…That's okay, that's what it's supposed to do.…After all, this is an effect.…
Next, I'm going to go to the Appearance panel,…down here in the lower right of my screen.…And I'm going to click on the 3D extrude and…Bevel effect that has been applied to this rectangle.…That's going to bring up the 3D extrude and Bevel Options panel.…I can turn on the Preview once again.…And next I'm going to start mapping my artwork.…So I'm going to click on Map artwork.…And here it shows me the first surface of six surfaces.…And I notice this right up here.…So, what we have to do is choose…the artwork that's going to go on each surface.…
