Free STSC_uvVectorMap – Map Object Geometry to UV Coordinate Space of a Surface

From the Autodesk App Store:

UV mapping tasks are quite common for rendering projects; most times the mapped items are pixels from a flat image, and the eventual goal is another flat image after rendering. The mapping process, though, can also apply to vector/curve entities. A flat orientation of curves can be remapped back to a 3D surface. The process allows coordination of features more easily than with the standard Autodesk® AutoCAD® 2D/3D toolset. These UV mapped entities can add detail to “Pen Plotter” style prints, or serve as construction geometry for even more complex modeling tasks.

2D geometry coordinated with "Canvas". Items may require mirror, hatched Exploded.

Mapped geometry after CVPROJ command.

"Canvas" as returned by CPMAP command.
