The UV map of the 3D object controls how the image layout appears on the object, such as the scale, shape, and repeat. The UV map information is created when the 3D object is created in a 3D modeling system. This means the UV layout will vary across different 3D objects. For more information and recommendations on editing the image if you are unable to edit the UV, refer to this community post.
Edit the file as required.
Save the file.
