Texture on curved surface (upholstered chair)

texture

#1

Hi,

I have switched to SU from Chief Architect. Putting patterned textures onto curved surfaces (like an upholstered chair) was no problem in Chief, however, in Sketchup I have problems when projecting a texture:

it can be either projected properly on the back of the chair (vertical surface) or to the seat cushion of the chair (horizontal surface).

In Chief the chair is nicely covered with no stretches of the material on either surface.

Any ideas how to solve this issue?

If I use V-Ray with materials within V-Ray, will I get the same result?

Many thanks for any help!

You could try with SketchUV plugin

or with Fredo6 Tools > Thrupaint plugin
