Applying materials to sphere

Does anyone know why and how togged rid of the TILE effect I’m getting when applying a material to a sphere?

What?

Do you mean FIX the TILE effect?

What’s material are you applying and how large is the sphere? Perhaps you can share the SketchUp file so we can help you.

If you want to project an image, see this: Mapping a Photo to a Hemi-Sphere in SketchUp - YouTube

If you want to “wrap” an image, this plugin may help:

Sphere on right 10’’ Radius

Sphere on left measurement N/A.
