Adding decals to a part is a good way to add logos and touchscreens to your Visualize scenes without having to incorporate them into the actual model design. They function just like digital stickers, and can be easily added to a part, moved around, and changed with appearances. Easily drag and drop to add decals to your project. Understand how to manipulate decals and the available settings. Apply appearances to decals that already exist in your scene.
