In this video, I explore how to wrap a 2D image onto a 3D cylinder that has been created as a mesh preset (there are a couple of ways to do it), and also how to add the same layer onto a cylinder that has been created as an extrusion.

  1. Hi Michael, Very clear. Many thanks for putting that together. Q? a) How do I remove the cylinder? b) and just keep the label? so I can then paste said label onto a photograph of a glass bottle. Thanks. Mark
