UV-Packer for Blender consists of 2 components that need to be installed separately: The UV-Packer for Blender addon that provides the user interface in Blender and the corresponding program that performs the packing.
Installing the Add-on¶
This will install the addon but not enable it. It will now show up in the list of installed add-ons. Use the enable checkbox to enable the UV-Packer add-on.
Installing the Program¶
Extract the downloaded zip file into the directory of the add-on you installed in step 1 above.
The “File:” entry points to the script. Put the program into the same directory.
Once the program is in the addon’s directory you can use UV-Packer from inside Blender.
Accessing the plug-in¶
To use UV-Packer in Blender make sure that the add-on is installed and enabled, otherwise UV-Packer will not show up in the user interface.
You can find UV-Packer as a tab in the sidebar of Blender’s UV Editor.
For more information about how to use UV-Packer refer to the usage section.
Open the section for the UV-Packer add-on and click the ‘Remove’ button under the add-on’s information.
This removes both the addon and the program from your Blender installation.
