Questions regarding Playground and Textures


Recommended Posts



I am designing a shed and would like to use a texture for the siding.   I really like this playground environment and even though I am a beginner, I have made good progress rendering my partial shed, but I can't seem to get the playground to let me use a custom texture image.


Here is my scene so far:




I am using grass as my texture because I can't upload my file to the playground (I don't see a mechanism for that).  I tried an absolute url instead of "textures/grass.jpg" in the code but that didn't work for some reason.  Is there a way to use custom texture .jpg images in the playground?


I also have a some of other questions:


1. I have defined my walls as boxes. I now need to add windows and doors and allow movement of those.   Is there any way I can cut my box defined mesh to allow the doors and windows or do I need to start over and define the mesh as a list of vertices?


2. is there a way to define different textures for different sides of a mesh?  I read about a cube of meshes to be placed in a subdirectory but didn't totally understand it.


3. I have visual studio 2015 and heard there is a way to use that as a build environment with intellisense but couldn't find any details.  Does that documentation exist?


thanks for any help.

Hello and welcome!


To use external texture, you have to deploy them to a server which does not check CORS: http://www.babylonjs-playground.com/#1SLLOJ#11


1. Yep you can use CSG for that: http://www.babylonjs.com/?CSG (sample code: https://github.com/BabylonJS/Samples/blob/master/Scenes/Customs/csg.js)

2. Yep you can use multimaterials and submeshes for that: https://github.com/BabylonJS/Samples/blob/master/Scenes/Customs/multimat.js (search for submeshes on this forum as well)

3. No formal documentation but if you add /// <reference path="babylon.max.js"/> in oyur .js files, you should get the intelisense
