Master texturing in Blender by learning how to use UV maps!
UV mapping – a process by which you “unwrap” a 3D model into a flat surface – offers creators an easy way to paint complex textures and apply them to 3D models. Given its importance, the process has also become an industry required skill expected of any aspiring 3D modeler.
Working in the popular Blender software, you’ll explore creating and applying UV maps to primitive objects, as well as complex objects like a bottle, which require further mesh setup. You’ll also develop skills for adjusting your maps to suit your material’s needs.
Regardless of the sort of model you’re making, skills in UV mapping will provide you with key skills to customize your 3D graphics to your exact specifications and allow you to go beyond flat colors for your textures.
This course assumes basic familiarity with Blender.
You will learn how to:
- Apply textures to an object
- Create UV maps for primitive shapes
- Build models suitable for UV mapping
- Combine techniques to unwrap complex objects
- Export UV maps for 2D graphic’s software
- Paint textures onto a flattened UV map

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.
With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.
I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.
The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
