Introduction


This script was written mostly to help you quickly lay the UV-map for simple objects

The script exports to disk a copy of the selected object with the new UV map

Each facet of the object is projected onto 1 of the 6 faces of a cube.

For example if a facet of an object is facing the sky, its UV map coordinates will be on the top face of the cube

Here is the UV map for a cube

The zip package is found at the bottom of this page

once installed, it will appear in your content library, under

Use


The script will only operate on selected items in the scene


You may select 

- a Figure

- one or many body parts from the same figure

- a single object


Launch the script


Click on the "Do it" button

you will be asked the location and filename for the exported object

for example "c:\mydazobjects\niceUVCube.obj"


Notice that the script suggests an image size for your texture maps

using this size or image ratio, we get undistorted results as shown here



to obtain a simplified texturing template, click on the "Template" button

then specify a location and filename for the template image 

for example "c:\\mytemplates\niceUVCybe.png"
