Texturing large models

Posted: April 09, 2013

Does anyone have any tips or tutorials for texturing large objects, with good detail?

I'm creating an open cut mine that is a cylindrical object with a radius of 500m so it's rather large...

Is there anyway in 3ds 2013 to create multiple unwraps on the one object?

Hi Luuuffy,
Welcome to the 3d forum
If you mean that a 4k texture is too small for details needed you can use multiple textures via a composite map, each texture applied to different UV tiles.
Here is a great tutorial explaining all this:

And here are 2 great video tutorials explaining Multiple UV channels and Tiles:

Thanks Andy,
I didn't know about this way of using multiple UV tiles.
Have you ever used this method?
