hi

what exactly are you trying to do? In general UV maps are linked to the geometry of the object and not transferrable.

If its just the texture you want then you could use the bake to selected option http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:Manual/Textures/

There are two methods to do this but, I found the easiest way to do is,


First select the model which you want to be unwrap then select the unwrapped model..

Go to

script window >> script menu >> object >> UV from Active

For this model's mesh (poly count) should be same....

For Blender 2.6x this option is under Object menu at the bottom of the 3D window.

As before, select the model which you want to be unwrap then select the unwrapped model:

Object --> Make Links (Shortcut Ctrl L) ---> Transfer UV Layouts
