Procedural Wood
« on: June 05, 2020, 07:04:27 am »
Hey Guys,

Wondering if anyone can help. How do I go about getting the wood to follow a regular grain on the main surface where it is currently showing the inside of the grain?

If you made your object in CAD (Inventor, SolidWorks, MOI, Rhino etc) each pieces already has UVs. But you might need to export them with different material IDs…per pieces. Or at least per similar Pieces (4 Legs, BackRest, Seat etc). This will allow you to fix the direction of the wood grain to suit each parts by using the rotate UV slider or a different projection mode altogether (Planar, Cylindrical for example).

Hope this helps.
