Texture 3D

This is a resource-intensive command that requires your computer to make heavy processing. We suggest only using this command when other programs on your device are closed.
Using this command you can select a surface, and cover it with an amazing Texture 3D, a three-dimensional interpretation of a 2D texture using it as a heightmap. It's especially useful to apply complex texturing to your designs.
Running this command will display its parameters in the Commands toolbar.
You can choose which texture you want to use by clicking on the left selection square, this will open your available textures. With the right selection square, you can choose which object you want to apply the Texture 3D to. Below you can find the measurements of the texture, from its stretching in U and V, its displacement, height, and rotation. You also have the option to align the texture in its four corners or mirror it on two axes. At the bottom, you can find the Resolution slider, which lets you adjust the quality of the resulting texture.
To create the Texture 3D, click on the Refresh button. Once the preview is being displayed, you can click on the Confirm changes button.
