Industrial Strength Uvs. With laser precision
Create Quasi-Stretch-Free UV Maps from 3D Meshes
RizomUV RS is a full-featured UV Mapping application, with features surpassing most offerings currently on the market. Whereas its sibling, RizomUV VS (Virtual Spaces), is for CG, RizomUV RS (Real Space) is our UV Mapping application for manufactured products needing real-world coordinates. It is dedicated to engineers and designers specialized in real-world applications such as laser surface texturing, pad printing or in inflatable structures design. It has been designed as a CAD application, in which the UV space plays as an engineer sheet, containing UV mappings automatically generated from your original 3D model and your guidelines.
It doesn’t matter if you have a complex mesh, or a mesh full of non-quads. RizomUV doesn’t care about this. It can flatten +1M poly models with real-world measurements into perfectly flat, non-overlapping maps fastly.
1:1 Stretch Heat Map
Stretch matters – especially in CAD. That’s why we’ve taken pains to make sure our stretch heat map displays accordingly to your needs. RizomUV RS considers neutral stretch when the 3D lengths equal the UV ones. In presence of a difference in lengths between the two spaces for the same element, you’ll notice it immediately.
Low Stretch UV generation
RizomUV use advanced algorithms to create almost stretch-free UV Maps using energy minimization methods, like the ones used in finite elements software. If your 3D surface is developable, you’ll get zero stretching at all in your UVs. With a curved surface, you’ll get the lowest stretching possible.

BigTIFF UV Stamp Export
Most classic file formats use 32bit offsets and, as such, are limited to 4 gigabytes (65,535×65,535 pixels), which can be limitating. RizomUV Real Space offers BigTiff export format, that can handle huge images, breaking the 4 gig boundary, and so creating UV stamps at extremelly high resolution, such as the ones necessary for laser texturing processes.
RizomUV proposes many local edition tools, like stretch reduction brushes with masks, deformation box, proportional transformation, real time deformation, several dozen of alignement tools, and several mesh segmentation tools.
Giving low-stretch UVs is often not enough. Some projects need to get the lower stretch possible under specific constraints such as vertex pinning or edge orientation. RizomUV will propose you everything you need in that domain too.

Do I need the VS or RS version ?
Choose the RS version if the UV Maps your produce will serve as guide to produce a real word object. Contrary to the VS version that rescale the UV to fit them in a unity square, the RS version will keep the real dimensions and scale of the object in UV space. For instance, if you unwrap a 4x4m^2 plane into the VS, the plane will be rescaled to 1x1m^2 into the UV space. In the RS, the plane will keep its dimensions, 4x4m^2 in the UV space.
Can the RS does all the VS does ?
Absolutely, to change the RS to the VS mode, disable “the 1:1 mode” into the “Unwrap Panel”, enable “Auto Fit” in the “Packing Panel”, and switch the “Heat Map” to “Isl. Stretch” mode.
