Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Mapping curved objects, part of SketchUp 2013 Essential Training.
…When applying materials, sometimes you'll have…to apply materials to curved surfaces.…Now this can present a little bit of a…problem, but let's show you how to do this.…I'm going to create a simple cylinder here.…In fact, let's go ahead and make it a very specific radius.…We're going to make it two-foot radius, and then we're going to…pull that up into a cylinder, so it's like Pus-Pull tool.…And pull that face up five feet.…So I have a two-foot radius by five-foot…high object.…Now if I wanted to, let's say this is a can, and I want a label on the can.…
Well, I could go File > Import and import this label.…So let's select the label here, and we want to use this as a texture.…So if I hit Open, you'll see that I can snap it to any one of…these surfaces, but it's not really snapping, because…it's a curved surface, so it's hard to snap.…But let's go ahead and snap it and get the size anyway.…So I'm going to snap it here.…And drag it up so that the top of this matches the top of the can.…And when I do that, you'll see that, well, it didn't quite work.…
