I design cushions for airplane seats and am trying to display a leather cover on the cushions with pull lines for piping detailing. etc. I am also wondering if a leather material style is availble for DL online.

Note that the image of the seat I posted is very old now and this tutorial is out-of-date.

It is no longer necessary to extrude the surfaces to get the 3D path.  You can now project one 2D sketch onto another directly when creating the 3D sketch.

cloth rather than leather - but there are webistes (cbliss is one) that have material images.

 

I see you did a double post of the same question

that is generally frowned upon as is causes confusion when someone else searches for solutions.

Yes i didnt mean to. I was hoping to be able to contact you to find out how you did that seat I saw as an example under the leather coverings post by a different person. How did you acheive what appears to be the piping?
