Texture question

I’ve looked through the archives, but can’t find an answer to my question.

I’m trying texture for the first time and it’s working out quite well. Is there a way to make the texture pattern follow a contour rather than a straight line? For example: If there were a snake like pattern (maybe a winding stream across a field), can the pattern be set to align with the stream as it meanders?


No, that is not a feature of Carbide Create.

The only way to do this sort of thing in CC would be to create additional geometry which paralleled the path and use Contour toolpaths.

Not sure 100% that’s I’m following, but perhaps you could add a bitmap depth via 3d inside a stream-shaped polygon?

I really appreciate your idea, but it’s way beyond my 76 year old mind and limited knowledge. Thanks!
