Help with mapping artwork to a 3d revolve object

May 1, 2013 1:31 AM

I have created a 3d object to look like a coffee mate carton. I tried to post images on here but I keep getting an error.The art work that I want to put on my object consists of a number of elements which have been saved as a symbol. (image) However whenever I try to map it to my object nothing happens. I have used some of the system symbols and these work fine. I have also made a simple label of text only and this works fine. Is there a problem using more complex symbols in this way?  Any help would be appreciated

    To post your image on this forum there is a bug with most browsers where you have to concel after the first attempt and try again. ALso try shrtening the name to alpanumerics and using .png or .jpg RGB color mode.

     

    Exactly how far do you get when you tyr to mapo, do you see the symbol name?

     

    Click on stretch to fit, make your window bigger(incase the symbol is off the canvas), does the preview of your symbol look correct in the symbols palete, or sould a stray point have posisbly gotten into that. Here is what the window should look like, so you can better describe how far you get.

     

    Also try to create a fresh new symbol and shape to extrude, something simple so we know if the problem is the symbol, path or something else.
