UV unwrap right attachment

I have 3 UV unwrap issues:

  • I like to unwrap the object on the left. Blender scales corner areas and base areas differently. You would like the faces to be the correct size compared to eachother.
    Is there a way to fix this?
  • It also expands the UV map to the size of the image behind. I like Blender to calculate the layout so I can project a label onto it in photoshop and not the other way around.
  • The base area has curves in the unwrap, while visually it is a straight line.

Edit mode – uv Calculation tab. This gives you a choice of unwrap styles. Angle Based (angles) or Conformal (by area) Pick conformal

If you do the sides – Four seams (one side and one corner x4) Unwrap just the sides. Pin them, and then reunwrap with the corners added.

No idea what you were meaning for item 2

Once everything is unwrapped you can average the island scales so they are roughly the same pixel resolution.
