How to apply a picture to a 3D-model ?

Hello

How to apply a picture like a label to a 3D-model ?

  1. To a plain flat-surface.
  2. To a convex surface.

I tried Raster Image on 2D surface. Does it work if I want to laser engrave it and such ?

Hi @12131444 ,

 

As far I know, you can only add Raster Image on 2-D Plain surface.

Raster image is generally used to draw some profile or display image in part. Also it is grouped with other Reference Features/commands indicating this is just for reference. So I think, image can't be used in engraving.

 

Following video will be helpful from manufacturing point of view:

You can add a Texture to any face, which can include an image file.

What function is the texture adding ? Most functions are "Hidden".

You should check with your laser engraving software/hardware first to see what type of file it will accept as input.

No license for Studio Visualize.
