Hi - I did it once, so I know it it possible, but I can’t repeat it.
I find it quite difficult to position my image on the version with thousands of edges across the face - I do realize that the other is a N-gon but it sure is easier to work with.
What is the best way to bring in a shape to extrude and apply a image to the flat, front plane. I’ve done it many times by deleting some of those edges, but that is a terrible job.
This version is what I want to repeat, with other shapes
This is what I get when I fill the curve (I know, it connects the vertices, but it’s a mess to work with)
p.s Here’s an example of a past project I did using the “delete some edges” technique
