Hey everyone, I'm trying to get this picture to wrap around this cylinder, but the last bit of it gets cut off as shown here...
Any ideas on how to make sure the entire decal is visible? I attached the necessary files.
To get the label to show properly, all you have to do is change the horizontal mapping back to 0. This will center the label on the filter.
If you also want the label to be the same size as the flat label, click on Reset Scale. Size changes from 179 x 70 to 129 x 50.
Since this was a newer version of SW than mine I could not pull your model in but I made a cylinder and but a standard decal in and this is the settings I used to achieve this.
Yeah I tried this but I get this weird compressed image when using the "cylindrical" method that you used.
Wow Glenn You showed me a better way. I will remember this.
Hello Jake,.. very odd, something is not right .. when I view your file... for some reason,.. I can see thru the part?.. it remains white after removing the color?.. and I can not see hidden lines.. and it gets fragmented? (image attached,.. imho,.. I would SEND TO VAR!)
NEVER MIND.. the model had a hidden "Display State"
...if I export or do a insert part,.. the decal works and I can view normally.
never mind,.. you had a ..hidden Display State

Dang it - if I would have known that, I might not have responded hhehehhe
..so, the "darkside" (evil) is strong with you?
Paul, I just did "Hidden Lines Removed" to the solid body

Glenn Schroeder, I like the idea, but I don't want the image to expand to fit the cylinder. I want to keep the image the same size. You can see that the cicled 1 and 3 have shifted over in relation to the black bar (see below)
Brilliant Bill, thank you so much!
I see what was happening now. I was trying to get the logo and part number centered in the front view which is what was throwing off the horizontal mapping.
The front view won't have the logo/part number, but I suppose we could just "update standard views" to do so.
Label Mapping uses the logo's center (which is the bar code).
Switch to Cylindrical Mapping.
Under Mapping, change the Axis Direction to XY.
Then go to Front View and adjust the Mapping Angle to rotate the decal to what you want to show.
