Need help UV Mapping this:


Hello? I need help in how to best create a UV Map for this lunchbox model I first made in another program. I thought I could just select six facets and create planar UVs like with a cube. But the lips around the two 'lids" have polygons that are perpendicular to main polygons.

Can anybody suggest the best way to handle the red areas? The large blue and white areas will have images that I plan to illustrate myself.

BTW: the PLG Tools link doesn’t work and I don’t have it on my system.


Hi, have you tried to isolate the areas and use the native abf uv unwrap on those?
The forums over on:
are much more frequented and full of a bunch of very helpful people…


Hi. Sorry I haven’t updated this for so long. I stopped working on it when I couldn’t find an appropriate solution. I’ve only recently resumed it after replacing my old PC and getting the latest Lightwave. It’s not been remade within Lightwave 2018 and unwrapped via the ABF method.
