Bathroom Ladder, Part 2: UV mapping
This the second tutorial in the bathroom ladder series. It shows how to use the perpendicular relationship established in the modeling tutorial to facilitate predictable UV mapping. This tutorial specifically looks at establishing uniform UV relationships across all the ladder components so a single material with a wood bitmap can be applied and maintain correct visual size. Videos 1 and 2 establish the basic workflow, with video 3 through 6 UV mapping the ladder. The Bathroom Ladder Tutorial #1 can be found here.
