Just updated Ai a couple days ago. The new 3D and Materials window does not have the Map Art button. It does not show up when I search for it in the Help dropdown, either. Map Art was so simple, and it's exactly what I need right now. Is it gone forever? Is there a work around? I'm trying to map a jpeg to a 3D object.

That's ok when you just want to use the Classic 3D, but I don't think you can combine the new Materials with Map Art right now..?

You will need the Substance tools to create materials that use your own artwork when you want it in the new 3D effects.

Absolutely ridiculous that the mapping feature has been taken away from this now.

It is a work in progress. 

   3D and Materials (Technology Preview)

Adobe continues to invest in new capabilities that would enhance the Illustrator experience. We would like you to participate and try out 3D and Materials feature and provide feedback. Please note that the feature is in Technology Preview, and hence some of the capabilities would evolve including performance.
