Editing Materials such as Pine wood

Anonymous

How do I stop the grain in pine or any other wood with a heavy grain pattern from running into the next board? This picture is actually 4 boards stacked.

Each board needs its material origin adjusted, otherwise obvious patterns all radiate from the same origin...

Us the Align 3D texture tool to do this.

I've found the align 3D Texture, and I see that I must be in 3D mode to get them to highlight, but, not sure how to operate tool.......

The idea is that once an element - slab roof wall is selected in 3D, you then either Set Origin or Set Direction for it by picking the command in the menu, then clicking on a node of the element to relocate the texture map to begin from that point. In the case of direction, you draw a vector.

Play.

Off topic... but I WISH we could align in elevation views.
