    Even mapping onto 3d object in Illustrator CS3

    Matt McArthur

      Having a wee bit of a problem here - I have created artwork for a display stand and, to demonstrate how this will look, I'm trying to make a 3 mockup in illustrator CS3.

       

      I've created a top down shape for the object which I then extrude and map the image on to - this is where the problem arises! Illustrator seems to 'bunch' the mapped image around points where curves are tighter (presumably due the increase in vertices there) rather than mapping it evenly around the surface. This causes some rather undesirable warping of the image which rather ruins the effect!

       

      Can anyone tell me a way of avoiding this?

       

      Many thanks!
