I plan on wrapping a label around this bottle but the label gets distorted everytime, so I've concluded I need measurements to match. I've thought about making edge loops to get a specific height when making a selection and as for the circumference I can only think of counting all the faces and multiplying length times that. Am I on the right track? Let me know if there's a more effective way of achieving this.
To unwrap a cylinder in correct proportion:
- Cut a vertical seam where you want it
- Set an orthogonal view (poles or equator.. here, equator)
- In edit mode, U unwrap with 'Cylinder Projection' and settings as shown..
- Oddly, in the 'Radius' field, entering
.. which doesn't make sense to me .. but there it is...
