Aligning UV Grids to a Reference

You can align the UV grid on a planar divided surface by using a straight edge of the surface as a reference, or an external reference. This method allows you to rotate the grid to be aligned to the edges you select.

  1. In the Conceptual Design Environment, select the planar divided surface that you wish to adust.
  2. Click Modify | Divided SurfaceModify Panel (Align).
  3. Select the edge of the divided surface you wish to align to.
  4. Select a U or V grid line on the divided surface.

    The divided surface is updated to align the selected U or V grid with the edge of the divided surface. The rotation parameters on the divided surface also update to reflect the new angle.
