Can you try the same with the Classic 3D Effect?
A gradient could be added later.
You could make the symbol smaller, or the cylinder larger or use the Scale to Fit button.
Nope, still doesn't show up. Even when using scale to fit.
Can you share an example .ai file?

Thanks, you should try to map it to another surface. This is 6.
Sorry, I'm not sure I understand what you mean?
Laura, in the Map Art dialog you can use the arrows next to Surface to browse to a surface to use for art mapping.
Ohhh, I get it! I missed that part. I can do that and select invisible geometry so I can then drop it onto the better 3D object using the newer 3D method. Trick will be getting it the exact same size and perspective. Thanks so much!
Good to hear that helped.
Ok, stuck again! I've managed to get the graphic mapped on perfectly but now I need to make 2 more with different labels. When I try to replace the mapped graphic it makes me resize and re-adjust it. Is there a way to simply replace that symbol on the 3D object and have it be the exact same size/placement?
So it doesn't work when you just edit the symbol?
Not in the map art diaglog box. This is where I have it perfectly laid out:
Then if I select the new symbol, this is what happens and I have to resize/rejig it and it's impossible to get it perfect
Figured it out! I've edited the symbol from the symbol palette and voila, replaced 🙂
