    Wall Wrapping in 3D - Visual Question

    Hi all,
    In the image below we are trying top wrap the material onto the window reveals. We have tried all wrapping options but nothing seems to work. Is it possible to wrap the material in 3D views?
    What may make this a little trickier is that we split the surface and applied a 'paint' material on this section.
    Thanks for any advice in advance.

    Tick ‘wrap at inserts’ in the edit type properties dialog box for your wall.

    And most importantly make the material as the exterior surface of your wall and DON’T paint it on !

    Thank you for the reply.
    I will try this. While I see your point about the painting I do not want to create 4 separate walls on one facade so thought splitting the surface was the best option. I will have to weigh up the pros and cons of each way.

    Split face and paint sucks. Full stop.

    You definitely DO want to make four different walls.

    How are your windows made? If they are made with the storefront tool the wall won't wrap (even with wrap at inserts enabled)
