Unwrap UV Examples and Demos
« on: January 07, 2020, 01:52:46 am »
In this topic a number of examples and demos on the Unwrap UV tool will be posted.
Each example will consist of:
  • a video going through a workflow
  • the KeyShot scene used in the video
  • images before and after Unwrap UV

Happy unwrapping!

The Luxion team

Example 1: Twisted Wood

A SOLIDWORKS model of a twisted wooden panel.
The outer and side surfaces consist of multiple NURBS patches. This causes the default UV mapping to show discontinuities and distortions in the texture flow.
Unwrap UV provides a solution for proper continuous texture flow with minimal distortions.

Example 2: Segmented Tube

A SOLIDWORKS model of a tube with connected helix and spiral segments. In order to simulate a braided cable, a RealCloth material is used.
The different segments of the tube are separate NURBS patches. This causes the default UV mapping to show discontinuities and distortions in the weave pattern of RealCloth and a wildly varying density of Flyaway Fibers.
Unwrap UV provides a solution for proper continuous weave patterns with minimal distortions and a constant Flyaway Fiber density.
