Rendering Decals

Bokia

The image above was rendered using Inventor Studio. In the assembly file, there is a decal on the LCD screen. Unfortunately, Inventor Studio does not have the capability of rendering decals. This has been one of my problems in using Inventor. However, this Q&A about rendering decals has answered my question. The one who answered the question suggested to use the Surface Styles in Autodesk Inventor and use a bitmap file as a texture. All you have to do is to adjust the scale of the bitmap. When experimenting with it, I’ve had problems in being able to put the texture in just one face because that is the one where I’d like the decal to appear. The material selection in Inventor Studio is only enabled for the whole part and not just for the face of a part.
