Modifying Decal Mapping

You can modify the mapping of any decal, whether imported or applied in SOLIDWORKS Visualize, to use Cylindrical, Spherical, and Label (UV) mapping modes.

  1. Select a decal.
  2. In the Palette, in the Appearance tab, in the Mapping subtab, select a mapping mode:
    • Cylindrical
    • Spherical
    • Label (UV)
    The mapping controls in the Palette and the manipulator in the viewport correspond to the mapping mode you select.

    You can switch mapping modes, adjust how the decal image appears, and adjust the definition of the mapping projection.
