  1. Extrude 2D shapes

    With the addition of the lathe feature (by the way, bravo, great work!), it would also be great to be able to extrude 2D shapes.

    • I wish you will provide a tutorial how to build my own boxshot models

      I have problems with the most common .3ds models I like to import. I have a lot of ideas and miss a lot of models. So please teach us how to build boxshot models by us self.

      • Make the floor and other objects on the floor impenetrable.

        Make the floor and other objects on the floor impenetrable. I would like to be able to drop 3 books on the floor and not have them merge into each other... build a scene by putting the shapes together without them merging into each other but rather moving as if they touched the other object. Could be done by 1. setting for floor somewhere - always impenetrable. 2. Setting like Put to the floor with Add Gravity.

          • Distort labels to look correct on curved containers/shapes

            I'd like to have the graphics on labels compensate for curves on container shapes. For example, in real life production, when a printer creates a shrink wrap label for a curved bottle, the graphics are compensated so that they look correct when wrapped around the bottle curves (instead of stretched and warped).

            • Smoothing of Imported Models

              It would be great if you had an option for smoothing an imported model much like other 3d programs have. It would smooth out the polys of a lower poly count model.

              • Copy and past model in exact same position.

                It would be useful to be able to copy and past in place so that you can move forward or back, left or right in the same line as original model. if you don't want to use the step and repeat function

                • The ability to cut holes in shapes, by subtracting through interaction.

                  Using one shape to cut or subtract from another shape. Allowing for holes and more custom models.

                  • can you adjust the background perspective?

                    can you take a flat texture (wood table ie) and add it as a background then adjust the perspective so it looks realistic with lighting/perspective/reflections etc. Right now it appears you can only have a 2d flat image as a background with no control over the perspective.

                        • a save with elements assembly

                          Please think about a method to save a project that it could collect all the elements ( maps, .3ds, boxshot save etc) in a single folder , a zip folder for example

                                  when you have to render a different 3D with the same imported shape (i.e. two or more yogurt or ice creams with the same cluster/pack or else) should be a good thing to refresh all the images/texture contained in a different folder of the first one

                                    • How about animating screens on iPad or iPhones in 3D models?

                                      It'd be great if you could not only make a 3D render of your app on an iPad but also show a few different screens when people play about with in in 3D. Any chance of this?

                                      • Export/Import file settings

                                        Allow the export of all or selected settings so that they be imported (and thus replicated) in other/new Boxshot files. For example I have revised my lighting setup in a file and have twenty other similar files to make the same lighting adjustment to. This would also work for all the other settings and be a tremendous time saver.
