I’m trying to project a texture to a building facade & the decorative features on top of it.
This is the building:
This is the texture:
I’m at the stage where I am trying to create the “control geometry” (Defined here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHsRRLCAOm8)
Basically I need to create an equivalent of the rectangle in this image, which exactly mirrors the perimeter/outline of the shape w the curved surface
Unfortunately, the area around the cornice is particularly complex and includes several curves angled diagonally (as opposed to parallel) from the plane where the control geometry would be created.
Is there a directly way to do this? I’m worried that I won’t be able to capture the curve properly.
Alternatively, is there a way to select all of the faces on a model that face a given direction, or the outer most faces oriented similarly?
Here’s a link to the model in case it’s useful: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vXb3yETiDHjn4w7kabMhZh7acRDQZPZi/view?usp=sharing
Full disclosure, I’ve been working on this with stellar support from others in the SketchUp community in this thread already, but I think I got myself lost on one of the steps and figured the question in and of itself would be a useful thread in and of itself
