Attribute Mapping / Landscape Wall

Recommended Posts

I am having difficulty using the Attribute Mapping Tool on segments of a curving Landscape Wall. I'm wondering if the program doesn't allow the process and am wasting my time trying to do it. I am trying to get a texture to appear continuous instead of segmented.

Tim - I just made a curved landscape wall (vw2011) and applied a brick texture to it. Segmented as you report.

At first, I thought one could extract the surfaces (use a duplicate of the wall) by converting to group, enter the group, then apply shell tool to surfaces. Shell objects display a texture continuously over the objects in the shell, even if they are not adjacent. Worked better than the wall, but still not perfect match at the edges. Even worse when rotate the brick texture - continuity fell apart at segment edges.

So, one solution is to model a new, continuous surface, say with lofts or a tilted extrude, and offset it just a bit outside the wall surface.

Thanks for the reply Benson. I abandoned the landscape wall tool totally, and just did the presentation for the customer using extrudes. Maybe the tool will work with the new 2012 release
