I am trying to apply a decal to 1 face of an ellipse...
what ever I try is showing the decal going straight though the solid body.
Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong??
What I would do is add a Split Line Curve the size of the decal and then place the decal on the Split Line Curve, that way you can control the size & location and also eliminate the issue you show..
excuse my lack of knowledge...
what is a split line surve??
Then add your decal to that surface. The reason I like to do it that way is because you have a lot more control over the location and size.
Thank you john....
a brilliant solution to my issue.
But why does SW not have this behaviour on a flat surface??

yes, the bleeding right through.
Anytime I use a decal or a jpg, I handle it the same way, use the Split Line Curve, gives you the most control and is a lot more robust.
Because on a curved surface, that is 1 surface. For a flat piece of bar stock, that is 2 surfaces. The decal will apply to 1 surface, however, in the case of a curved surface, it has 2 solutions. Not sure why it doesn't ask you which side you want it on (or direction) like the split line does though.
