I am trying to streamline workflow. I thought that I could import a 2d cad drawing, paint the landscape with materials then project or drape that 2d landscape over my 3d terrain.
When I did so, I was able to drape the 2d cad landscape layout reasonably successfully, but for a few touchup and I was quite pleased.
I was hoping the colors would transfer too but they did not.
I went on to try to project the materials to the 3d model but this appears to only work with pictures / images.
I wanted to use the materials and not images, as once the 3d model was complete, I would use the materials in a 3d renderer.
I have previously hand applied materials to the 3d terrain model but this takes time and the more complex the model the more time it takes. I was especially looking to reduce that step so I could quickly update the model with changes this way.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to improve the workflow and/or project multiple materials from a 2d model to a 3d one?
