Textures not displaying


(Kristokas) #1

Hello,

I am having trouble with adding textures (.jpg or .png) files to my models.
I have tried uploading straight from Solidworks aswell as .obj file with materials in the zipped file.
Also i tried adding the material later in the 3D settings.

Here is what i am seeing after the upload.

What am i doing wrong ?

All the best,
Kristo

Hi Kristo,

It looks like there is incorrect UV mapping, or no UV mapping. Most likely, all the UV coordinates are set to (0,0) or something, so the whole face gets set to the color of that one pixel.

Getting textures/materials out of Solidworks is a bit tricky. I don't know that SW has native UV unwrapping tools, but I've seen it done successfully in Blender and Modo.

Here are the basics of it in Blender: https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Blender_3D:_Noob_to_Pro/UV_Map_Basics
