Image will not wrap correctly in vanishing point

I am trying to wrap an image around a 3 dimensional box, but the image cuts off half way through the top plane. The portion of the image that should be on the bottom left plane appears at the top of the left plane. This occurs after I create my vanishing point planes and paste my image into the vanishing point work area. The image is pasted with no problems but as soon as I move it over my 3-D image to wrap it, this problem occurs.

    The 3-D Box is a graphic from adobe illustator, and the image is in another layer, yes. The reason I need to use vanishing point to wrap this image around the box is that I am taking a course in graphic design and this is how my instructors want me to accomplish this task. I've included a link to the images in flickr. The following is the link.

    Hi there surc6,
    Hopefully I can help out - I just want to get it straight in my head what your trying to do.
    I'm guessing that the 3d box is a pre-made graphic or image of some kind. on another layer you have an image that you are wanting to paste onto the box.
    Because I'm having trouble visualising what you are trying to accomplish you'll have to excuse my naive question. Why not chop the image into the 3 parts that will be visible then use the warp or distort transforms to adjust their shape. Vanishing point is normally used for repeating a pattern in perspective so I'm unsure how you are using it to paste in an image.
    If you can upload an example to a free image site for me to view, this would be of help.

    All the best

Hi again,
Ok, I finally got it licked and why you're having the problems and it's fairly simple. It's all based on 2 things but most of all, the order in which you create your planes or grids.

Because the main part of the image is on the front face that is what you want as your Parent face so get that as accurate as you can to start off with. Hold the 'x' key to temp zoom in and get the position as correct as you can.
Once you've created you're primary ctrl-click(cmd-click on mac) the mid top point and pull it out then the same for the mid left point.
Now if it still has the problem when you paste in the image and drag it onto the primary face then undo the paste. We need to adjust the secondary planes. Select the top plane and in the angle parameter (which should show 270°) change it to 269°. Then change the left planes angle to 89°. Try it now and it should work fine. Then put it back to 270° and 90° again.

Let me know how you get on.

All the best

I have a problem of air leaking from inter stage safety valve. During pumping air leaking and compressor running continually and trying to fill up the tanks until the desire pressure or cut out point...


Remove the valve and wrap some Teflon tape around the threads of the valve fitting (about two wraps). Reinstall the valve and the leaking should stop. Make sure the valve is snugged down good.

Cant get my 3" block plane back together

Pretty hard to help you directly. 3" is a pretty small plane if you mean the length of it, and pretty big if you mean the width.... try Google images for "plane buck", maybe a picture will help. Good luck.

What are the examples of line,plane,point


Well I'm not sure why you are asking but these are general terms. These terms are used in geometry.
When printers are printer graphics they are using so called primitives to print graphic objects. The best example that comes to mind is when you use CAD software to print drawings. This is a very involved subject. One could quite easily devote a large book to discussing it.

As to the specifics of the objects line, plane and point. Well you know what a point is correct?
A point is a one dimensional geometric object. If you simply place the tip of a ballpoint pen on a piece of paper and create a dot, that is a point.

You know what a line is correct? A line is a two dimensional geometric object. If you place a straight object on a piece of paper, like say a book. And draw with your ball point pen along it's edge you create a line.

A plane may not be as obvious. A plane is a three dimensional geometric object. Imagine a piece of cardboard floating in the air in front of you. This is a plane.

A plane represented on a two dimensional object, like a plane drawn on a piece of paper (two dimensional) creates either a rectangle or a parallelogram.

If this does not answer your question you will have to be more specific.

Diference between yd and cubic yd.

A yard is 1 dimensional so just a straight line.
A cubic yard is 3 dimensional so imagine a box with all sides being 1 yard long, the volume of this box is a cubic yard.

Need another set of tv-to-tv cables. An a/v cable and a dc cable

I had to move my AV cable around quite a bit to get the second monitor to come on. I realized it was the cable and not the connection by holding steady the connections and moving just the wire. I checked Radio Shack and Best Buy - no luck...

Then I did the following (takes 30 minutes max):
1.) found the portion of the cable that was bad
2.) carefully sliced open the outer jacket (with a box cutter razor),
3.) carefully pulled the wires (white, red, yellow, and bare copper ground) out of the outer black jacket. Inspected and found no visible defects. Realized that likely the yellow wire (probably the video feed) was shorting against the bare did the following remaining steps to remove the ground away from other wires.
4.) cut and unwound the ground,
5.) put the white, red, and yelllow wires back inside the outer black jacket, but left the bare ground out
6.) wrapped the two ends of the bare ground (that I cut in step 4) around the outer black jacket (still containing the other wires)
7.) reconnected the two ends of the bare ground, by twisting them together (you'll use-up an inch or two of the ground to re-twist it, so you will have to leave a small bump in the cable from the excess black jacketed portion.
8.) use black electrical tape to wrap all the wires together from the portion we opened-up.

Works like a champ.

I have a problem with squirrels chewing holes in the hose from the the tank to the burner. this has happened 3 times now. Is there any way to stop this?

I have used aluminum gutter guard and cut it the size I needed and wrap it around the hose. It's easy to cut and easy to wrap around whatever you need to. It's sold a places like lowes etc.I've used it on electrical wiring harness's on my tractor and it stopped them.

Knocks alot is it the motor or is there a bolt in the transmision bell

Look under the car to see if there is a loose heat shield around the exhaust pipe/catalytic converter area. Look right between the front seats (under the car). The front portion normally rusts away from the bolts holding it in place. This is like a ****-shell part - the top half or bottom half vibrate against the catalytic converter (sounds like knocking). Dealer can fix for about $100. You can fix for about $5.

Get a small piece of fiber glass fabric (auto store) and fold nicely and fit betwen the loose parts. Then get 3 pieces of 10 gauge copper about 18 inches long and wrap around the entire heat shield and twist tight. This will stop the vibration and last a long time in harsh environmental conditions. Do not just drive without the heat shield. You can melt your carpeting and start fires if you ever drive on grass.
