How to get rid of unwanted copies of a decal?
« on: January 17, 2011, 02:15:42 pm »
I'm experimenting with some basic shapes trying to make a 3Dmodel for a project in school. When i add a label it appears 3-4 times on different sides of the model . How can i get rid of this so that the label is shown only once?

Cylindrical mapping distorted the label alot so I used box mapping. Oh, and the model is done in SolidEdge

I'd appreciate some help  :)

A box map will project the decal from the 6 sides of a cube. To get just one label projected onto the model, set the mapping to "from normal" and then click "position", then click on the point on your model where you want the label to be.

Let us know how it works out.
