    Alias Automotive UV mapping solved?

    Alias Automotive technical support mentioned in a technical discussion that as of the 2013 version, Alias OBJ export will carry over UV coordinates assigned to NURBS surfaces, a feature dropped many...

    Hi David,

    I'm counting myself as a fairly articulate user so I'm putting feature requests into the appropriate section ;) If you want, I can provide a list of what I posted in the previous and...

    Rhino I like for its algorithmic and physics plug-ins like grasshopper & kangaroo & et. al. But for fast controlled surfacing, I still prefer Alias, also because of its interface. But with Shot, all...

    Yes, that sucks. I was more absorbed with software comparisons and UV-mapping technicalities than product development, design work and research. There is now just too many 3D modelling and rendering...

    See the previous thread Texture mapping and you'll see that assigning UVs and then exporting OBJ don't really work in softwares like Alias, Pro/E, Catia, etc. As you will see from the thread, you can...

    Hi,

    like I mentioned earlier, Alias does not export FBX format and Alias does not include Showcase. However, Alias tessellates NURBS surfaces to the user's liking, uniformly or on a per-surface...

    Ok, each IGS part, that obviously is made from one material, ends up on a separate layer in Rhino; therefore, it ends up as a separate model set in the palette in Shot - which makes assigning...

    Same model, done in Rhino 4.0 SR9 works, the Shot tessellator preserves the UV mapping done in Rhino, although there's a separate material for each surface after importing, before consolidating...

    Hi David,

    I have tried the same wire file from Alias 2010 up to Alias 2012 before going down the OBJ route. Importing a wire file does locate the textures, but, once you switch from the box...

  13. Procedural textures and texture channel remapping

    would be fantastic. Think of little surface quality errors, a whiff of dust, etc. or anything else to easily modify the squeaky clean looks of renders. Or, being able to remap the texture channel to...

    Thanks. We updated Shot a few weeks ago. So far (Bunkspeed support is looking at it though), it only works by exporting Alias Automotive 2010+ data as IGS file to Rhino 4.0 and do what you suggest....

    Native Rhino, OBJ from Rhino, IGS from Rhino - no surface texture mapping via Shot Pro's UV mapping. As in case of Alias, it works within Rhino. Another, albeit tedious way, would be to export IGS or...

    Texture mapping

    Again, the texture mapping woes. No method works for an ultra-simple task like this: a truss of wooden planks; the sides of the planks obviously need a different texture mapped than the narrow tops...

    what do you mean by "make sure that your UV mapping number is 1"?

  23. Texture mapping with data from Rhino and Alias

    Hi,

    apparently, when importing OBJ data from Rhino or Alias or when importing native data, tessellating it with Shot PRO, texture maps assigned do carry over, show up on the material preview ball,...
