As I was cruisin’ around the wine shop a few night’s ago, admiring a particular wine label, I thought it was about time for a Skill Builder on the topic of mapping images to curved surfaces in SketchUp.
I remember way back when I started learning SketchUp, I wanted to draw a robot. I wanted the robot to have a nice smooth domed head. I was able to do so… kind of. Initially my geometry looked great and smooth, but as I edited it and changed the geometry, some of the edges were showing up and ruining the smoothness of my robo-dome!
Did you know that many SketchUp tools have alter egos? You might think you know your SketchUp tools pretty well, but many have supplemental functions revealed in the status bar at the bottom of the SketchUp window that most folks don’t notice.
