Hello All,

UVLayout v2.05 is now available for all users from ...

http://www.uvlayout.com/update

New tools added in this version:

- Segment : Speeds up the flattening of "hard" surface geometry,
that is, non-organic shapes like buildings, furniture and other
props. See it in action under the Advanced section of the
uvlayout.com videos. Professional version only.

Changes to existing tools:

- Symmetry Find : When packing, symmetrical shells will now be
arranged to the left and right sides of tiles and boxes.

- Symmetry Find : Now the left half of the mesh will always be
shaded darker, and the right side lighter. If you want it the
other way round, spin your model around before selecting the
center-line edge.

- Copy UVs : Added quick select hotkey that finds edges on shells
with matching topology. Copying UVs is now one button click, to
select an edge on the source object, then a hotkey tap to find all
matching shells, and a final hotkey tap to confirm the selections.
The Advanced Copy-UVs-3.mov video shows how its done.

- Packing : Added Align Shells to Axes option, which will square
up shells to the U and V axes during packing.

- Packing : Added Allow Box Overlaps option, which was the default
before but can now be turned off. This option will allow other
boxes or shells to use empty space found in larger boxes.

- Packing : Added Shrink Boxes To Fit option, which will shrink
wrap boxes around their contents after packing.

Bugs fixed:

- Big World Import preference. If you are importing objects that
are part of a much larger world (e.g. a gargoyle on top of a
cathedral), and experience things like collapsing shells while
flattening, try turning this preference on. It moves the objects
to the origin on import, and moves them back out on export.

- Optimize : Would sometimes keep on running, even though all
shells were optimally flattened, because of some remaining
"spinning" shells.

- Packing : Will now allow boxes inside boxes inside boxes and
so on, to any depth.

Phil

Oops, it looks like I broke the Shift-F "bloat" hotkey in v2.05! I'll fix this ASAP, and hope to have new installers ready tomorrow.

Hello All,

UVLayout v2.05.01 is now available for all users.

Changes to existing tools:

- T hotkey : If a Display Trace image is loaded into the UV view,
that texture will now be applied to the 3D view of the object in
place of the numbered grid texture.

Bugs fixed:

- Shift-F hotkey : Was broken in the latest release.

Question: I *think* my subscription has lapsed, so would I need to purchase UVLayout again to get the upgrade at this point? I purchased a hobbyist version.

No, you just need to renew your support subscription. For single licenses its US$50 per year, and there's a payment link on your uvlayout.com Support Details page. If you've forgotten your Login License ID, just send me an email and I'll let you know what it is.
