Material question


#1

i started a project by bringing in a goggle map of the area. the existing home is about 5 degrees off of true north so i aligned the structure with the map, then reset the axes to match the building. All has worked fine until i started with materials. the material patterns still follow true north axes instead of building axes and i have “eye ball” rotating the alignment. Is there a way to set material patterns to “square up” with the building.

Try making your house into a component and then within that component, you can change the axes. Maybe that’ll align your matetial


#3

Why not simply model the house square to the axis system and then place it in situ later? You don’t really even have to geo-locate the model initially.

@quantj thank for that, it works very well, and actually that solves another minor issue I was having too

@Gully_Foyle the thought was to put it where it belongs and work from there since I know I will be uploading it a couple of times before I’m done I did not want to take the chance of between building and site eliminates forgetting to rotate something or rotate it back

I can’t apply a material on a curve surface or on something like Can. Ex: Can Label…
Please help me…
