Blender Export UV Map

Blender has a feature called Texture Paint to paint the 3D model inside this 3D software. If you have your other favourite paint software like as Unity, Photoshop, we can export the UV layout from Blender, and paint texture in other software. Below steps are showing how to export UV map (UV layout) in Blender 3.0 or later.
