copying texture from one component to another

Postby Karolis » Wed Oct 19, 2022 8:12 pm


Basic user going pro version over here. Working on Mac SU pro 2022

Can someone please guide me in how to copy texture from one component to another.

Say you have one or two sheets of veneer or a slabs of natural stone, each with a unique pattern (TEXTURE say slab of 1600x1100mm). You have drawn a cube (500x500x500) with all faces mitred 45 degrees and you want to position them on this sheet of veneer and find the best way to match the pattern, veins.

What I would do is have copies of all component of cube faces laid out on the sheet (the one 1600x1100) and would copy the positioned part of texture to the components so that my component copies in a cube formation would reflect the final design.

So, how do I transfer that part of texture to the components (without damaging the original texture "sheet")?

I have seen it done on a Windows version of SU but cannot recreate it and don't know if any extensions were involved.

Any guidance, references would be much appreciated.
