    Tutorial: Making a realistic wire-braided texture in modo

    Paul McCrorey

      Ok  guys/gals,


      I recently worked on an image where I needed a braided wire to look realistic. I wasn't as successful getting it done with the projection types available in Photoworks.  It turns out to be pretty easy in modo using an image map and a projection type called "UV".  Essentially mapping the image onto a flattend version of your geometry.


      This is the process I went through to achieve that in modo.


      This is a series of tutorials geared towards Solidworks users using modo.


      I have broken out the tutorial set so you can skip to the stuff you want to see.


      Let me know if you have any questions.
