Why and how to use the Warp tool

The Warp tool in Textura allows you to align tiled materials

Why and how to use the Warp Tool:

Use cases

  • Sometimes a scan is “mostly” perfect but has a defect or two (curved, misaligned)
  • This tool is especially useful for aligning plaids and stripes
  • In the event a portion of the fabric is askew you may use the warp tool to straighten the material out. 

Menu elements & How to:

  • The Warp tool (Circled, see below)

  • Select an area
  • Multi selection of points (slider bar increase/decrease) See image, below:

  • You may slide fully to the right for a 6x6 (36 editable node grid)
  • By selecting the <control> key (and left mouse button) you can select multiple nodes to edit.
  • Helpful tip: Each of these are editable, but we suggest aligning via scan first - a successful scan will always shorten your textura creation cycle

What to look out for:

  • The warp tool allows you to excessively edit your files and you may damage them. (This could potentially be a creative tool!)
