Projection Maker is a tool that allows you to map a texture onto an image plane, modify the vertices so that it matches up with your object, then project the modified image onto the model, automatically matching the UVs with virtually no stretching. This also mean that you don't need to create time-consuming UVs. An automatic mapping should be all that is needed.

This tool is inspired by zBrush's Projection Master, and Ryan Kingslien's Texturing with Photo reference tutorial that can be found here.

Please do not redistribute this tool.

Please, enjoy it!
