This was my first attempt at doing UV mapping with a simple box texture using a cube and Maya’s UV mapping tool. Even though this was a simple exercise, i still experienced some problems when applying the texture to the box. For example, on the corners of the box, there was a slight gap of black where the texture wasn’t applied correctly, so it was difficult to move the unwrapped UV to the right place where the tape lined up as well as the corners.

I will expand on this blog post once i explore more with UV mapping
