    One question I have is how do they make the model show the texture like this: [​IMG]

    There are testing textures around that can be used, and that's how modellers, in this case Chris, gets to check if there's any stretching and such.

    Here's one I just found --> UV Checker Texture

    Also, I found a link on one of the Blender forums where someone states there's a built-in one within Blender, and I just checked it out. There's a color version and a non-color version (smaller blocks), and they are displayed on the "floor" of the UV Editor, so you can place your unwrapped pieces correctly. I think you can also actually use either of them as textures for your model, but it has to be unwrapped first, or it'll really look weird.

    Check it out here --> In the UVImage Editor >> Image >> New then choose Color Grid or UV Grid. The Blank one is just plain black so not helpful as far as I can see.

    You're quite welcome. I never knew it was there. I usually just add a UV Checker texture, so it's good to know there's another option.

    Thanks for the link Earl. I hadn't come across that article before. Definitely going to bookmark it.

    OK folks, haven't updated the links in my main Help, Forums and Tutorials list in a while, but I just posted a new addition to the Add-ons Section. Thanks to Heddheld on the Renderosity Blender forum, it's a link to the Blender Wiki's Blender Add-ons Catalog. Looks like a great resource for Blender add-ons.

    Uh oh, that's not good. Not sure who takes care of the Wiki, so don't know whom to report it to. It may very well be an old add-on that's no longer working in newer versions of Blender, or was replaced by another, more up-to-date add-on.
