Painting a graphic to a dome


Compass.skp (217.2 KB)

I am creating a floating ball compass and am having difficulty projecting the ‘scale.png’ onto the surface of a dome. It works fine with a cylinder but not with the dome. Any suggestions please.

Thanks so much

I’ve used the plugin Thrupaint as a part of FredoTools (Fredo6) for this: (170.9 KB)


Thanks Cotty - I shall experiment.


Cotty, I have looked at Thrupaint and am struggling to work out how you did this - do you have an brief explanation please Thanks


You have to play with the tool until the texture is in the right position…


Thanks again - I just needed that pointer.
