Workflow: Accurately mapping images onto site geometry. 1. Microstation . Use drawing as base for image map. 4. Attach Material to dummy geometry. . 2. Photoshop . 3. Microstation . Create material in Material Editor. Use jpg as Pattern Map.`. Print to pdf & import into Photoshop
1.Microstation. Use drawing as base for image map.
4. AttachMaterial to dummy geometry.
3.Microstation. Create material in Material Editor. Use jpg as Pattern Map.`
Print to pdf & import into Photoshop
(use sheet definition to maintain proportion & registration of image for future changes)
Resolution controls final size / quality – keep consistent for future changes
Save copy as JPG
Need actual size for material definition = printed size. Use Master units. Repeat On.
Directional Drape - Top
Example sheet definition: A3 sheet @ 1:250
(smaller sheet size = thicker lines)
(use png raster format for transparency)
5. Move dummy geometry in Illustration Display mode.
Preview allows you to position map accurately by eye against model.
6. Create Projection Group based on dummy geometry .
Create logical name
7. Attach Projection to actual mesh/ geometry
Attach material first, then attach projection.
8. Finish. Check Element Information to see projection group has been correctly assigned
Map will now be locked to origin and will not move with the geometry. The same projection group can be used for multiple elements.
1-Select dummy geometry
2 – Accept while snapped to centre
Select new projection group from drop down.
