Part of Lesson Plan: Creating 3D Materials
Activity Overview / Details
Objective: Map a brick material onto a cube object to create a brick wall.
- Create 3D object
- Create brick material
- Apply the material to the object
- Map the material to the object
Step 1: Create a 3D primitive cube and resize it
into the shape of a brick wall. This can be further adjusted later
Step 2: Create a brick material and apply it to the wall object.
Step 3: Set the Projection to Cubic.
Step 4: Adjust the cubic map by position, scale
Step 5: Adjust the cubic map using tiles. The brick thickness should be about one third of the length.
Step 6: Adjust the wall object thickness if necessary to create a wall thickness of one brick.
Mapping Materials Requires:
- Manipulating object
- Setting projection
- Adjusting the tiles
- Adjusting the map
