What is UV?

UV is an essential part of 3D visualization. It determines how the final image will look, and can be used to create special effects. Without UV, a 3D model would be a flat, lifeless object.

In 3D visualization, UV refers to the process of unwrapping a 3D model so that it can be mapped to a 2D surface. This is necessary in order to texture the model – without UVs, there would be no way to tell the software which part of the texture should go where on the model.

UV unwrapping can be a complex process, but it’s essential for creating realistic textures and materials. By understanding how UV works, you can create better 3D visualizations.
