3D Molding Texture

Recommended Posts

So I downloaded this candle holder model, it has the exact shape I'm looking for but it only has one texture assigned to it. Is there anyway to separate the model or add another color to make the top part of it a different color?

You would need another symbol.  This one should be fairly easy to create in chief using Molding Profiles on a circular Molding Polyline.

Each Molding Profile can have a different material assigned to it.

It can also be edited in Chief with the use of the Delete Surfaces tool and the creation of a new symbol.

 

Here is a video that Michael did a while back that should help.

There are ways to even further speed the process up too.  Most notably you can increase the Smoothing Angle for your symbols to greatly speed up surface deletion for some cases.
