  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.

      • Envelopes, boxes with punched holes, tubes

        I would like:

        1. Envelopes of different types. It would be awsome if one could place a letter (partly) inside the envelope.

        2. Paper with a folding

        3. Tubes like this:

        4. Boxes that are filled with empty space (not a solid block as it is now) the to make it possible to use image transparency to "punch holes" in the box. Like this:
        http://pinterest.com/pin/281756520409921017/

        5. A carton box/lid where one side is missing (shoe box lid)

          • Control amount of open angle for books/magazines

            I often want open books and magazines. The Magazine shape has no parameters for opening it. The book shapes have 3 options - closed, opened a bit, opened. Often none of these three options are sufficient.I need the book opened more. With the current shapes it is often difficult to tell a book is even opened. It would be very handy to control the degree of "openness".

            To get around this issue I'm often cobbling together multiple shapes and spending way too much time trying to get angles correct before even addressing appearance. This somewhat defeats the purpose of the…

                  • Render safe border (smooth shadows)

                    In BoxShot 3D there is a really nice feature that ensures shadows to be faded by the borders of the canvas.

                    Cannot find this feature in boxshot 4.. Now I have to use photoshop afterwards to "fade" out shadows manually..

                    Any chance this feature may be added?

                          • saving external shapes to shapes library

                            Though you can import external shapes there is no way to save them to the shapes library. A good example is the shapes available in the shape store. Is there a way to add shapes to the Shapes list on the right of the UI?

                            • add the ability to align and distribute objects in box shot

                              We often do a lineup of products. In order to place them side by side we have to manually drag them which is time consuming and never perfect. An align and distribute objects function like Illustrator has would be very helpful.

                                  First of all: what a great piece of software for such reasonable price! I only have one complain about this, I can't make packshots with shrinkfoils.

                                  See this example what I mean: http://forum.bodybuilding.gr/attachment.php?attachmentid=17034&stc=1&d=1287728077

                                  I can make great packshots for labels, but is it possible to stretch the labels till the cap and bottom? That will make everything perfect!

                                  Hope to hear from you soon!

                                    • Apply Settings to Multiple Objects in a Scene

                                      Now that we have great support to add multiple objects to a scene, there needs to be a way of selecting multiple objects on the scene and modify the settings for all selected objects.

                                      For example, I might select an entire stack of business card objects and change the image, or the corner, etc. Right now, some of the templates have multiple objects on them and you have to select each one individually, even if you're making the same change to each image.

                                      • Corner Ration

                                        It would be nice if i could change the corner intensity of the "round corners" of the softcover

                                        And the Intensity of the curve of the back on the hardcover.
