View Full Version : "Flower Petal" Mapping Coordinates?

09-10-2007, 08:11 PM
I need to set up the upper and lower halves of a sphere with UV coordinates like this image.


Before I get down to business of figuring this out in modeler, does anyone know of a easy way to get the UV's to layout identical to this mapping? And, does anyone happen to know what this type of mapping is called? I found this image on the USGS website and they simply call it a "flower petal" appearance.

LSCM Uv's . select your edges that you want opened.

That's the one! - plg_Make_UV_Edit
Actually found it while scouring the forums late last night. Works great, my UV's are a perfect match!
