Material shifts when it applied to a group

Post by kendallw » Wed Dec 12, 2018 8:46 pm

In this example material is applied to the box as a group, not to the individual faces. That when when I apply the material it automatically maps to all sides the way I want it to, but when I render in LightUp it shifts. Is there a way to fix this? It doesn't happen all the time.

I figured out that this is problem when the material is applied to a group and not to the actual surface. SketchUp allows the material to be applied to an entire group or groups nested with in groups and the material will be placed by the origin of the group/component, but LightUp seems to have a difficult time understanding how this is translated, so the material moves slightly. The only way to fix this is to apply the material to the actual face rather than the group. Sometimes, it will work if there is no nested groups/components and the material is applied to the group, but not always.
