These videos may feature new additions to Design 3D CX Version 7.5.

7.5, UV Mapping a metal clamp

This Design 3D 7.5 UV mapping tutorial shows how to UV map a metal type clamp object. It focuses on reconstructing some UVs after an 'accidental' deletion of geometry by using the Conform mechanism on specifically selected geometry.

7.5, UV Mapping a mechanical type shape

This Design 3D 7.5 UV mapping tutorial show various approaches to UV mapping a mechanical type shape. It also specifically shows how to ensure that each UV island has the same size relationship as the rest of the mesh.

7.5, Being aware of polygon facing direction when UV mapping

This Design 3D 7.5 UV mapping tutorial demonstrates an important factor (face direction) to consider when UV mapping with the new Conform function in order to get predictable results.

7.5, UV mapping the stem of a lamp

This UV mapping tutorial demonstrates the use of the conform unwrap function (LSCM) on UVs generated from a cylindrical map. It also shows how to use the Rotate to Grid function to facilitate the UV mapping process.

7.5, Unwrapping the rim of a tin can, Method 2

This UV mapping tutorial demonstrates how to use the new Conform function after having manually generating initial UVs from a cylindrically mapped texture. This is the second tutorial showing how to UV map the rim of this tin can.
