I need to create a label in solid edge. i tried a part with a bmp image applied but the image does not show up all the time and not at all when place in an assembly.
To create a label, you need a 3D model to represent the substrate of the label.
You will create a Face Style and specify a image mapped at a scale of 1 with Units set to Surface (you may have to come back here and rotate the image to correct it on your label).
You then use Part Painter to paint a surface of your label with the image.
You will need to make sure your View Overrides in both Assembly and the Part are set to show textures.
Someone may have a different method that is simpler...
