Help "wrapping" texture on

Hi there,

I am trying to make a custom texture to wrap around a cube using “”. Tutorial 34 makes the following claim:

“The object uses a “gift-wrapping” strategy to apply the texture to the tetrahedron. In the help file, the texture_maps subpatch illustrates exactly how the different platonic solids are wrapped.”

But I can’t seem to find the “texture_maps” subpatch they are talking about. Can anyone direct me to this subpatch, or offer clues about how the wrapping works in

Eventually I want to have a grid of many cubes, rotating independently to create a composite picture collage of a Face.
