    Hi!
    I would really like to use the Box Mapping to project textures on my meshes without having to UV unwrap them, but I really don’t get it… DO you have an example or some guideline??
    Each time I try, I get unexpected results, either black material, or stretched texture. Attached is an example…
    Thanks for your help!

    Look at the Parametric Objects demo materials. They mostly use a box mapping for textures.

    Thanks for your answer! But…
    I’ve had a look, but unless I’m wrong the textures use a “flat” projection… I could not find any with the “box” projection (wood, wall, etc…). From version 2.15 it is said that “We supported all available projection modes”. Can you indicate me which material uses this projection mode?
    Thanks very much!

    Material wood in Parametric Objects uses box projection.

    Ok but it looks like a “custom” box mapping where you separate X,Y and Z and then project the same wood texture differently along each of the axis with a “flat” mapping… Am I right? :scratch: There is no direct box mapping as far as I could see!?
    Regards

    There’s a custom box mapping but also a Blender box mapping supported. How do you setup your texture, pkease share a screenshot of the material nodes.
