Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Projecting maps onto curved objects, part of SketchUp 2013 Essential Training.
…If you want to apply textures to a surface…more accurately, you may need to use projected textures.…Let me show you how this works.…Now I've got this simple object, but I've got this kind…of concave surface and I want to put a texture on it.…Now if I were to do File> Import here.…And, say, select that soup label, open it up, and apply it.…You'll see that while I get the same sort of situation that I had with the soup can.…And if I apply that material, well, it applies…but I can't control the position of the material.…
I can control the scale, but not the position.…So I can actually get the position a…little bit more accurately using what's called a projection.…So I'm actually going to back my way out of this.…I'm going to undo that and we're going to create what's called a projector.…Which is basically a slide projector screen…from which we're going to project that texture.…So I need to create a rectangle…as wide as this opening.…So I'm going to select my Rectangle tool, draw across that opening,…and you can see how it closes off, but we'll fix that.…
