converting my 3d model in a flattened 2d net?

I have tried googling for this, but can’t seem to find anything. I’d like to produce a flattened 2d net of my 3d model, for use in an external image editing app to create a texture map, is this possible?

thanks in advance

You need to search for UV unwrapping


ah, excellent, thanks a lot :slight_smile:

if you need paper model

there is an embedded script to do this!

let us know if you find it in 2.49
but probably not yet in 2.5

good luck
