Fast modeling with texture
By Thiago Jos� C�ser
Hi everyone. I found a trick way to put a texture in a circumference shape without losing time mapping the Uvs. This technic can be used for fast modeling of similar shapes. So here we go:
I took three pictures of a can that I found in my house: a bottom, a top and a middle texture. So I annexed them in three planes.
In the next step I created and sized a cylinder in the plane with the top can texture. It�s very easy because the plane don�t distort the texture.
Select the cylinder them the plane and do a polygons � boolems � intersection.
We have the texture and the shape finished! Do the same with the bottom texture. Don�t forget to copy and paste the same cylinder.
Using the same cylinder we can match the vertex points of the cylinder with the bottom and top �plane� textures. So we can grab the points and merge vertex. Don�t forget to combine the polygons to use the merge vertex action.
End. I hope this was useful!
