I’m having trouble saving a new material for unit paving so that it remains fixed in the position I created it in. To help explain here is my “make new material procedure”.
I first model a paver (400 x 400 sq. mm), the same size as the actual paver I photographed. I then open SU Materials > Create new material & load the image, change it’s scale to 400 x 400 mm then apply it to the paver top (same size). Right click the surface > Position Texture to position it fit the paver top exactly > right click > Done.
I then right click > Make Unique Texture & it appears as a new material in Model Materials (thumbnail look fine). BUT, when I apply my new paver material to a paver, it doesn’t line up the same as the one I created. The new material scale & position is different to the one I just created. I’ve tried repeating the “position texture” process & Make Unique again but it doesn’t seem to help. It always seems to be in the wrong position & scaling has reverted back to original image size/orientation. The original image is lined up square when I open it, haven’t tried re-orientating it in photo editor but don’t see why I should have to when I do it in SU.
What am I doing wrong? I’ve created custom materials before & they have worked fine. Just can’t seem to get this one to work.
