i have this image:
image.thumb.png.e46a2237e559b6ec71e43d430d2e0128.png

I want to take the face of this block and rotate it so it is oriented to fit on the lower and right faces of this block.

I got the lower face rotated "ok", but dad-gum if I can't get any sort of rotation for that right face.

I wish I could just control the rotation along the specific X, Y, and Z axes one at a time...

Thank you PDN geniuses!!

If you have the original texture, you may want to use Shape3D and start from the beginning. It would be a bit of work, but you can rotate it to your hearts desire.

 

 

If you need to create the texture/pattern, there is a tut that can help you.

 

Although your image appears to be on a transparent layer, it is not.

Thank you for the reply!

 

I do indeed have the original texture: I made it myself.

I also have the Shape3D plugin, but when i apply the plugin to this image, it only applies the image to the front face, and no other faces.

 

Indeed, I used both of the tutorials in that post that you linked to make the diamond plate image I posted.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean here. If the image I created is on its own layer, and there's no other pixels on the layer, would that not mean that the rest of the layer is transparent?

 

EDIT:

Oh, yeah. Shape3D DOES work, I just had to select the correct texture map :)
