Texture Repeater (GlassBox tutorial, part 5)

Well, this is the last part of the tutorial and at same time the user manual of the GlassBox packages (when i release them.)

As we have seen, texturing glass boxes is not so easy; the hidden faces are not reachable. Because we cannot change mesh on-the-fly, GlassBox meshes use a special scripted item: The item is a box with six faces. As soon a texture or texture property on the prim faces changes, the installed script reflects the changes on accordant faces of linked glassbox meshes.

GlassBox (tutorial, part 4)

In last step we created a Meshbox made from a cube with set UVMap and LSL faces. In this step we will turn it into a GlassBox, made off two boxes, each with (different) UVMap and face definition – the inner and outer box.

In fact we must not start from beginning, we can and will simply copy the mesh of the MeshBox and change the UVMap and face definition of the copy. Because we copy inside the same object, both boxes will stay combined to the same object.

MeshBox (GlassBox tutorial, part 3)

Now it’s time for blender. We will make a mesh replacement box for a single system box in two steps: Creating the mesh cube, giving it an UVMap and make it’s faces independent from each other.

We start blender and click the splash screen away.

PrimBox (GlassBox tutorial, part 2)

In this step we want investigate the face order of the system box (used by scripts) and orientation of textures shown on the faces (used by designers.)

Mesh tutorial: Preparing blender

Hello again!

This tutorial is written because I started to mesh simple objects for my projects and I think it is a good idea to show people how I did them. I also planned to release packs containing a quite number of meshes. I will also give tutorials how I made that meshes, so you can only make one or two if you not need a pack, or make a bit different meshes.
