decal keeps appearing on two sides of the bottle

I made a bottle using illustrator and photoshop, and brought it into dimension as .obj

 

everything is working fine, except when I apply the decals, it appears on both sides (front/back) this is problematic since the bottle is clear glass and I only want the label to appear on one side. Is there any way to fix this?

thanks for the file... what matters is the way you made it in Photoshop i.e, a smart object = 2 faces for front and back errorrepairfixed the best way to repair your bottle is to select [just] the bottle and ask Dimension to make a new UV map... this will now have only a single face for the decal to fix to

Hi,

 

Ive been having exactly the same issue on one of my bottle files, definitely got the label on the bottle as a decal and not a fill, but always gets replicated on the back of the bottle as well.

Can you please explain these steps? I cannot seem to figure out how to get rid of the double side either. I'm trying to make a transparent front label, with also trying to have a transparent back (has different design than front) but it keeps mirroring and i can't figure out how to stop that. Can you explain what you're doing in this?

Hi,

 

I am having the same issue as @colleenbruce, I have a clear tub with a different label on the front and the back. I created my tub using Illustrator and Photoshop and I can't figure out how to have two seperate labels.

 

Here is my DN file https://we.tl/t-tp0z0OJMcb

@Ussnorway you have covered two separate labels but what do I do if I want one single label as a wrap-around but not as a Fill Graphic?

 

I tried adding another object I created in photoshop and put it around my tub but it has created me two different problems. 

 

1. I seem to have a hole in my Label object that I can't seem to get rid of.

2. The label still doesn't seem to wrap properly when I add it as a graphic on the Label model.

 

Is there a better way to do it?

p.s, just to be clear;

  • Decal never goes all the way around
  • for the full 360 you MUST use a fill

Thank you for the response.

 

I have used fill on the graphic layer as per your repaired file, but I still can't get the image to wrap all the way around. It always repeats half way around the tub? How do I get the image to wrap all the way around with no repeat?

I have had that issue when I tried it a different way so gave up on that method, but now I have the issue where I have a full wrap but its repeating half way around instead of full wrap or even a partial wrap no matter what I try.

you didn't give me this image so I can't test it but sounds like the shape will end up being the problem i.e, a square image doesn't wrap without cutting part off or double up... you may have better luck learning Blender because that has a tool for unwrapping UV models so you can 'see' how the textures get wrapped around shapes

 

@Ares no that bug is not the issue... at least not on the pill bottle I was given to test mate

Its not an issue with the image size. I have attached my test label and when I add it to the model you sent over I cannot get the label to go all the way around. It repeats half way around for no reason?

 

I think the UV mapping is fine as it goes all the way around the tub but its treating the image as though it isnt long enough when it is plenty long enough to go all the way around. Maybe I have some settings wrong but I can't see anything obvious?
