Texture electronic cable
« on: December 01, 2015, 07:24:58 am »
Hi everybody,
I need a short advise. I try to texture a cable. It has to be two colours going along the cable not twisted as you can regard at the screenshot.
I try a few ways without success ..now I´m blocked :P
Has someone the ultimate idea.

I just tried it too and got unexpected results. What file format is your model in ? I tried 3DM

Add this material to the diffuse slot or texture slot if using translucent material, use uv mapping type and scale to suit
