Since the UV Room may contain a number of different sets of UV Maps, first select the desired UV Map before proceeding with your export.

Just like exporting textures from the Paint Room - exporting from the UV Room involves exporting individual textures, in the form of UV Maps, which correspond to Diffuse, Specular, Normal, Displacement and Emmisive texture data.

Use the Export options found in the “Textures” menu as displayed below:

The only remaining “Export” function is found in the “File” menu, which is the same option available in the Paint Workspace - “Export”, which exports a polygonal version of your model in one of the following formats - .obj, .lwo, .fbx, .stl, and .ply

No UV Map would exist in the UV Workspace without first having topology created in the Retopo Workspace - having seams marked and having been “Unwrapped” and then “baked” into the Paint Room.

Alex Meister: First step to exporting your model is to Apply UV-set, this is very important since exporting it without pressing the button first will not saves your newly created UV.
There are multiple ways to export your model, I prefer Textures – Export UV, since I do my textures in another program and I like my geometry to stay exactly the same as it was.
File – Export, will create a High,medium or low poly that sometimes changes a few parts that you might not want it to do.
