About Adjusting Material Mapping On Objects and Faces

After you apply a texture to a material, you can adjust the orientation of the texture to fit the shape.

Adjust the Texture to Fit the Shape

You can adjust textures to fit the shape of the object by using material mapping. Mapping adjustments reduce inappropriate pattern distortion.

Use the Mapping Gizmo to Adjust the Texture

If you need to make further adjustments to a material map, you can use the mapping gizmo to move or rotate the texture map on the object. To display it, select a textured object and enter MATERIALMAP.

Adjust, move, and rotate the texture by dragging the gizmo axes.
