I want to texture a blade in Blender. For this, I use a generated Texture that creates this brushed look. Now I want to change the direction of the brushed metal to follow the direction of the curve. See picture from yellow to red. Is this possible?
I tried to use the Mapping node to change the rotation of the texture.
I uploaded the .blend file
I tried to UV unwrap it but i couldnt get it to work
