    Clip maps on multiple parts of an object?

    Does anyone know how to add clip maps to multiple parts of a single object?

    For example, if you had 1 object made up of 6 boxes and each box needed a letter (text) on each box as a clip map.
    I have an animation using Part-Move and need to put a clip mapped letter (text) on each part.

    If you have only a few parts in your object and use image mapping,
    the most simple way is to build a single image
    with letters side to side, and uv map each part UV
    side to side.

    I was going to say exactly the same, Denis. You might want to use UDIM tiles to ensure maximum resolution for each letter.
