I'm having a very difficult time properly texturing a tile floor mesh that I created from an imported SVG file.

There are several points in the mesh where there appears to be a seam where there shouldn't be one. I've created seams along the perimeter of the mesh and it appears correct in the image/uv editor so I don't know why this is happening. I'm relatively new to Blender so I'm hoping there is an easy solution I'm not aware of.

When the .svg was imported the mesh was a complete disaster so I deleted all edges aside from the perimeter and created quads manually by selecting 4 vertices and making a face "F". But for some reason selecting the edge loops of the perimeter only selects a small portion of the edges. Not sure if that is related to my problem.

  • $\begingroup$ "When the .svg was imported the mesh was a complete disaster" SVGs import as bezier curve objects, you should have left it as one. All you had to do was use Generated or Object texture coordinates. You now have a hard to edit mesh with NGons and bad topology. Don't needlessly convert to mesh unless strictly needed to. $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Jan 17 '18 at 17:52
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks guys! @cegaton, this method worked great, I assumed if I had a defined seam it would work by just using the "unwrap" method. Thanks! $\endgroup$ – Josh Teiken Jan 17 '18 at 20:10

You need to unwrap UVs again.

Select the top faces, got to top orthogonal view, press U to unwrap and select project form view.
