Odd Material Stretching

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm importing some furniture from 3d warehouse and my problem arises when applying materials to the furniture pieces.    Specifically, the material pattern looked stretched/zoomed on some pieces, but not on others.    Plan, material, and 3d models attached.   I've inserted a screenshot of two pieces of furniture with no material applied and with.    Note the top-right piece that seems odd.

Would someone be able to open the plan and confirm the odd behaviour that I'm seeing?

 

Thanks.

Yes I can confirm but not explain that behavior for you. If you make a copy of the material to apply to the chair without the arm (001) you can set it to about 2.5" x 2.5" rather than the default 20x20 and deselect stretch to fit and it should give you a reasonable match.

So I think I've got this nailed down to a problem in the sketchup model.    Some models show the odd material sizing.   Some don't.   But more importantly, I've found one model where some components of the model size incorrectly, and some do.

I see that you could not wait until the morning.  Maybe a Sketckup user could weigh in and explain.  It is maybe possible to edit in Sketchup?

So what i've done before is to make a layer system in SU on an object that matches the "material" delineation you want.  Even if materials are the same, if you want a different direction than in Chief it has to be a different material listing.  If you just isolate the surfaces into different layers before you export it should resolve all of this.

 

I've been able to import files into CA without doing all this, but when i've had issues I revert to the method above to resolve issues.
