About This File

Install Instructions:

-  Place the content of this zip in your blender script/addon folder

-  To avoid some further confusion and towards newer blender users->  place this addon in a <<folder>> , not in your base addon folder

-> Note -> Preferably in your appdata folder with the rest of your plugins

Usage Instructions:

Select the part of the mesh in the 3d view.
In case of any selected ( highlighted uv's ) -> manually deselect them
[ if anything is selected or appears wrong, use common sense an correct it manually ]

Press the desired button in the uv-editor.

The uv's will move.
After that they are moved ---> DESELECT <--- your items in the 3d view

Manual moving buttons remain the same

*** Update notes ***

v3.0:      Blender 2.80-PR migration

              Due to the massive changes towards the software, the plugin might not directly show and the user might
              need to activate the filter "User" on the addon screen
              If any changes need to be done when 2.8 goes onto official relase version, they will be addressed

v1.2:     Added extra materials to the layout. According to source image provided by
              discord to me.

v1.1:     Bugfix: No longer needed to select anything in the uv-window:

v1.0:     Activate the addon in the User section

              Then go into the Uv/image editor and the panel should be active as an extra
              tab on the Tool panel.

              To use it correctly , make sure that Keep UV and Edit mode in sync is <<<<OFF>>>><

              Select the desired uv's to move and click the appropriate buttons to move it.  
              Incase of blender placing the objects in the wrong place, make sure your in the correct mode.
              Also 8 directional buttons have been provided that allow directional control


I'm not resposinble for this tool altering your data in unexpexted fashions, please make use of the designed software feature's that are called "Save"

I really like the script.

It's indispensable when you are modding sth.!

I am mainly using the move one grid left/right... function.


Unfortunately, the download link isn't working correctly on my PC since a few days.

When I accept the rules, I get an error from Dropbox, that tells me that something went wrong.

A few days ago, it worked correctly.

Is there a fix for it or have you changed anything on the link?


I hope, the script will be further updated, because it is fairly nice!

Response from the author:

- Link should be working again -

Useful script for blender, which simplifies the process of setting or changing the materials.


Unfortunately, the installation process is unnecessary complicated. With a different file structure inside the zip file, the installation process for add-ons in blender could install the script correctly.


It should look like this:

-udim_Farming_280           (directory)
 -__pycache__               (directory)
  -__init__.cpython-37.pyc  (file)
 -__init__.py               (file)
 -readme.txt                (file)


But it looks like this after the download:

-__pycache__                (directory)
 -__init__.cpython-37.pyc   (file)
-__init__.py                (file)
-readme.txt                 (file)


Five stars for the idea and the execution. Minus one star for the installation process. Would be great, if the developer of the script could change the file structure.
