Decal on a Glass Cylinder

All,

 

I am new to Visualize 2017 (from photoview 360) and I am trying to render a decal that gets baked onto a borosilicate glass cylinder. It seems that visualize only uses planar mapping, whereas in SolidWorks I can use cylindrical mapping. This causes my decal to show through the other surfaces of the glassware. I can limit the decal depth to limit it, it still shows through the other side.

 

What is the best way to handle this? Should I make a very thin part in solidworks and mate it to the front of the glass? When I project onto this thin part it should only project onto that part in Visualize. We have many diameter products, so I would have to make a "decal part" and position it for each one, which is not ideal.
