UV Unwrapping a bottle cap

Viewing this tutorial requires a SubscriptionThis UV mapping tutorial UV unwraps a bottle cap type of object so a label can be applied and wrap around the sides. It specifically shows how to approach the UV mapping problem in this case by starting from projected UVs. It also shows how to set up good geometry starting with a lathe object which is easy to UV map.

Modeling a piece of paper with downturned corner

Viewing this tutorial requires a SubscriptionThis modeling tutorial shows how to use guides to ‘bend’ the corner of a piece of 'paper' or page type of object. It also covers the use of subsets and some basic UV mapping as it relates to the use of the Thickness function. It also shows how to use the Select Perimeter function to help set hard edges for subdivision surface control.

UV mapping a tooth brush container case

Viewing this tutorial requires a SubscriptionThis UV mapping tutorial shows how to UV map a tooth brush clear plastic case in order to apply the label on the outside only. It uses shows how to use polygon subsets to prepare the geometry for UV manipulation and uwrapping based on planar projected UVs.
