UV Mapping Complex Object

Recommended Posts



I've been following various tutorials on UV Mapping and I wanted to know if this approach to UV Mapping is a correct approach or if I am completely off/overcomplicating it?

I first divided my model into several saved selections. Then with each selection, I UV mapped it. I used the Frontal Projection and then I used the Relax UV option. So far I've completed half of my model using this approach. I've heard how difficult/tiresome UV mapping can be, that is why I wanted to inquire about the approach I am taking. The tutorial I followed (youtube) showed the method I am using. I apologize if I am not using terminology correctly. (I plan to take the UVs into Substance Painter or photoshop afterwards)


Here is a link to my C4D file. I've also attached an image of the UV Map that I've constructed so far.


Any guidance is greatly appreciated.
