UVW Map, exists in Vray for SketchUp?
Yesterday, 07:06 PM
Is it possible to add a UVW Map (or any other space modifier) to an object in SketchUp?..sort of in the same way as in 3ds Max?
I’m a regular user of 3ds Max but now I am learning SketchUp and trying to add maps with the chance to move the UVW within the object (gizmo), applied as planar, box, cylindrical, etc adjusting the length, width & high.
I see the UVW choice in the vray mats in Sketchup with the possibility to rotate then fixing the map size with SketchUp in the default mat editor, but nothing that allows me to place and manipulate the map on the object.
You could use SketchUV plugin:
Or the Thrupaint plugin:
You Could use V-ray UVW to adjust the repeat, rotation, offset, mirror and the crop but you could see the result of that right now only in the VFB.
Hope this help.
Edit: You could also use the Triplanar Map:

Thanks. the SketchUV plugin is a great help. After seeing the mentioned video in youtube I found other videos with suggesting & tips for plugins about UV texturing with SketchUp.
I guess, this is a matter of how the programs are built. I am still missing the easy handle of the properties of the space modifiers from Max in SketchUp…however, it is probably only me
Hope it helps -)
