I would like to put the text on the jacket of cable I have rendered. As the Cable itself starts off as a curve which is then converted to a mesh, I need a solution to place it on the mesh and follow it
Just unwrap the black cable and add the text as an image texture.
- Add seams to the cable - two around (to cut it from the rest), and one straight (to make it flat).
- Connect and position the image texture (either by moving the UV or using the Mapping node)
You'll need at least three seams here, to unwrap it flat.
