environment map

Last updated: June 30, 2020

Image file representing the projection of a 3D environment onto a 2D surface from a specific point of view. A set of these files can be applied to the six faces of the environment cube that surrounds a design (or environment). An environment map is not directly visible in the view, but is seen only when reflected or transmitted by surfaces in the model to which material characteristics are applied.
