What is Mesh Materializer?

For any 3D modeler that needs to wrap an object onto the surface of another object like a material, using a UV texture map as a guide.

The add-on handles the complexity of doing this for you in a non-destructive way by adding a unique modifier:

The Source Object (the spiral) is wrapped onto the Target Object (the egg) using the Target Object’s UV Map. It is then re-positioned using the modifier.


  • Simple right-click menu option performs the operation in one go.
  • The add-on maps the X direction of the object to the U direction of the UV map and the Y direction to the V direction.
  • Source object UVs and materials are transferred to the newly created object.
  • Use in combination with any other modifiers.
  • Control the height of the projected object above the Target Object.
  • Position, scale and rotate the object on top of the Target Object.
  • Update the original objects and the result will change in realtime.
  • A Preview Mode helps you position the object by unwrapping the Target Object’s UVs.
  • Creates a regular Blender object that can be exported or edited once its modifiers are applied.
  • Underlying objects are not affected.

Please Note

  • This add-on assumes experience with UV Maps.
  • The add-on does not currently work with overlapping UVs.
  • Check out the UV Squares add-on if you need to quickly turn your UVs into grids.
