      • Multiple Origami Suggestions

        At a previous employer I used Esko Designer Studio Illustrator plugin for years. Now that I freelance, I cannot afford Esko (over $4000 for Designer Studio and accompanying plugins to build your own dielines). Origami looks like a great value, so kudos to you! The following upgrades would, in my opinion, make it as good as Esko for my purposes:
        1: Paper thickness choice, ie. 12pt., and allow the thickness to be visible in the 3d model.
        2: curved fold lines (Esko does an excellent job at this, actually showing shadows and highlights to denote a hinged crease produced by…

        • Edit fold angles right into Origami

          I'd like the ability to edit fold angles right into Origami, and not only naming Illustrator layers.

            • Manually enter a rotation angle

              I usually have to output multiple angles of the same box. And then again for a different job a different box at the same angles (-45, -30, -15, 0, 15, 30, 45). I would love to be able to use origami to do this and not have to output the model to a 3D program. So, a way to manually control the rotation of the object on at least the X or Y axis would be really helpful.

                • add Overprint support

                  Hi Guys

                  As per my mail, I think overprint support for Illustrator Overprint being "rendered" in Origami would be really cool. We do a lot of repro based artwork where we need to use overprint to simulate the way different spot colours would print one over the other. In conjunction with layer "blending" support (which you've mentioned is in use already) this can only help extend the software usability and perhaps improve on the speed at which samples can be made and shared.

                  Granted it is probably not the easiest thing to implement, but it would put you guys one…

                    Origami Affinity Designer plugin or/and Origami standalone, as Affinity is close to a Windows version, or a stand alone that don't rely on Illustrator.

                    • Custom thickness

                      I sugest costum thickness for other materials like cardboard (i.e. A flute = 4.8mm; B flute = 3.2mm; C flute = 4.0mm; E flute: 1.6mm; F flute = 0.8mm; EB flute= 4.6mm). The current options aren't enough for acuracy when working on thicker materials. Thanks.

                          • pre-cut line

                            Some kind of packaging has pre-cut lines, it would be great if Origami could understand this kind of line and not only fold or cut

                            • Create a tool that helps you distribute an image across multiple concurrent panels of a die line in Illustrator

                              Having previously used Strata Enfold as a plugin with Illustrator one tool I found extremely handy was the image distribution tool. This allowed users to place an image on one panel and use the plugin to distribute that image across any panels that overlapped via the preview screen. This was really useful when I was trying to run an image over multiple surfaces of a die line as it ensured perfect alignment when the box / die line was folded up.

                              • ability to define bottom edge

                                I'd like to be able to select an edge as the bottom instead of placing a box on a panel. In my case I'm trying to design a sleeve and there is no bottom. To get around it I currently create a very small bottom edge and adjust my dueling accordingly but this is a bad hack at best.

                                  I feel your pain, but so far we see no way of simple and effective way of doing that. Suggestions are welcome.

                                  We can’t mark bottom with an edge, as shape may rotate around the edge, so the angle to the floor cannot be defined that way.

                                • Flat surface deformer

                                  We all know, that rigid boxes, almost regardless of any material are never a perfectly shaped 3d objects, their sides/faces are very often slightly distorted, so it would be very nice to have a option to define a parameter for distorting a plane side. I would see it similar to the object class like we have it now with "bottom". So for example one would put a shape that would pull outside or push inside the plane area it sits on. Object size and shape would define area affected by distortion, together with a threshold parameter. So for example a…
