Mallet: Uv Aligner

by Inlet in Addons

Enhancing your workflow with precise UV adjustments is essential for both hard and soft surface models. The ability to align UV maps with precision, whether using options like Top, Bottom, Left, Right, or Center, streamlines your process and saves valuable time.

For comprehensive UV adjustments, consider integrating UV Aligner with Material Mode, an addon designed to facilitate texture application directly in the viewport -

World Align provides seamless texture adjustment based on world coordinates, eliminating the need for manual tweaks and adjustments often required when UVs break due to rotations and positional variations. With World Align, simply select the object or specific faces, and with a single click, achieve precise adjustments in an instant.

While Cube Project is typically considered the default solution, it struggles with consistency and fails to handle angles effectively. When applied to individual faces, it often leads to disastrous results. In contrast, World Align effortlessly handles such challenges and actively prevents issues, ensuring smooth texture alignment every time.

With Justify, you can precisely position UV maps using various alignment options, ensuring optimal coverage and alignment. Fill functionality neatly covers the entire image within the UV map, with X and Y values indicating coverage or looping.

Transform tools enable basic UV movements, scaling, and rotations, supporting customization in both Imperial and Metric systems. Flipping and Scaling features offer direction reversal and resizing options, with Center and Edge modes for flexibility.

While these tasks can be performed manually, the absence of convenient buttons often results in time-consuming processes. Aligning UVs perfectly or scaling a face’s UV from its bottom edge can be tedious without dedicated tools.

Moreover, achieving proper UV filling or aligning faces with different world coordinates can be challenging and time-consuming. Manual adjustments on each face can consume countless hours and lead to frustration.

However, even with streamlined UV workflows, applying textures to numerous faces remains a significant task. Material Mode simplifies this process by allowing you to select materials and apply them directly to faces in the viewport. This eliminates the laborious manual process, enhancing efficiency and productivity -
