Hello all...once again I need some help :smile:

So....I have just started some 3d building off plot. It's been a while since I have done this and have a problem already...lol.

As you see in the pics I have started on a bridge and while the faces are visible from above, they are not from below. What I have done is create the new faces, applied the texture and extruded upwards. If someone can explain what I have done wrong it would be appreciated... :yes:

Cheers

Hiya DH... Unfortunately, a texture face is only visible on one side. If you flip it over, it will be invisible on the back side, as your example indicates. I found an easy way to make a square hollow box that is visible on all sides if that's what you needed. You can make a square hollow 4-sided box that is visible from all sides, and then stretch it to any size or shape you want.

I found a video that I made about a year and a half ago that will demonstrate how to make objects completely enclosed with no invisible side. Once you enclose a box, you can then shape it into anything you need, like a plank, or a board, or a bridge, or a hand railing, etc... Just about anything you need that can be seen from all 4 sides.

Hope this helps,

Just create another face using the 3 verts to make a bottom face twice.

Hi Sage. The pictures are not self explanatory to me. :unsure:

For one, how did you add that bottom triangle face between pic 3 and 4?

Why do you need to add an additional face on the bottom?

How many separate pieces of textures make up your final structure?

I'm confused... :surrender: :unsure: :dunno:

Hi Dan,

Creating the basic structure is just an extrusion from a face made from 2 triangles as a flat surface texture.

The you have a box with no "bottom".

Tilt the box so you see the invisible "bottom".

Now choose "face" "create" ( have verts turned on, it's easier) and click 3 verts in any order on the bottom of the open box. That will make 1/2 the "bottom" as a triangle.

Now do the same for the remaining triangle, this will close the "bottom" with a complete surface texture.

You now have a 6 sided box surfaced on all sides.

Hope this helps. Maybe I can figure out how to do a video showing my process.................Don't know how right now.

Oh and there are 14 final pieces of texture. 2 for each side. Except for the initial flat surface that has 4 just to make the edges sharp.

Sage...... :smile:

Dan, Sage

I knew I had an old tutorial somewhere, found it on an old pc. I have included some pictures from it that pretty much explain what Sage is doing.

Got it! Thanks for the more detailed instructions. :notworthy: I never keep verts turned on, so was not aware that you could create a face like that. I'll keep that in mind for sure. The way I did it by pulling the 4 verts together don't really get much easier, but it's great to know more than one way to do stuff. :tiphat:

Thanks again for that tip! :cheers1:
