Is UV unwrapping necessary?
UV unwrapping is the process of ‘unfolding’ a mesh so that you can create a 2D texture which fits the 3D object. It is generally necessary if you wish to texture your object very accurately, either in Blender itself or in an external image editor.
How do you fix UV on a substance painter?
Go to Edit < Project Configuration Change. Select file, enable preserve strokes and hit ok. It should be ok if you change only the UV's or do minor changes on mesh. Reimport the mesh with fixed uvs.

Is UV unwrapping hard?
Many people find the whole idea of UV unwrapping a daunting prospect, but, in reality, it isn’t difficult. The important part of the process is to plan ahead and think about the best places to put seams.
What is the point of unwrapping UV?
UV unwrapping refers to the process of opening a mesh for making a 2D texture that covers the 3D object. This method is effective if you need to add texture to your object precisely. You can create the texture for both Blender as well as an external image editor.
Why does UV unwrap?
A UV map is the flat representation of the surface of a 3D model used to easily wrap textures. The process of creating a UV map is called UV unwrapping. This is where UV mapping comes in, as it is the process of translating your 3D mesh into 2D information so that a 2D texture can be wrapped around it.

What are UDIM textures?
At its core, UDIM is simply an automatic UV offset system that assigns an image onto a specific UV tile, which allows you to use multiple lower resolution texture maps for neighboring surfaces, producing a higher resolution result without having to resort to using a single, ultra high-resolution image.
