Different Image/textrue On Each Side Of 3D Box?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am working on a small part of a design and the object I have imported is very complex ad 40 meg in size. I have to replicate this 52 times in the design. I've tried everything I could to make this smaller including importing many different file formats.  

 

I was wondering if I could take an idea from Video Games and create a 3D box and then add imported image, one to each side to give the illusion of a full 3D when rotated?    

 

I know in CA that I can place an image on a surface, but it is possible to create a box or tell the box to treat each surface as a separate surface so i can place a differenet image on each one?  

 

Any help would be highly appreciated.

If you draw a 3D box using the primitives menu, then select the box and click the 'Explode Shape' button, it explodes the box into 6 separate faces that can all have different materials applied.

Kirk,

 

Am I mistaken or does using a symbol multiple times in a plan not add much to the overhead?

I am thinking that there is only one instance of a symbol and Chief somehow uses that one instance multiple times?

Or...maybe I am way off track?
