  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.

      • Make boxshot stay open if no files are open

        I find myself having to open a file before closing another one in order to keep the program open. I am using osx.

          • Envelopes, Vehicle wraps, Presentation Folders...

            Been happily using BS3D for a couple years and would like to request (again) shapes for mocking up business identity systems:

            envelope sizes w/ flap shapes, pocket folders, vehicle shapes (generic sedan, truck, van, semi, and Mini Cooper, VW Beetle, etc.), pen/pencil/highlighter, USB drive, Polo shirt, golf hat, trade booth, buttons, etc.

            Thanks!

                • Special effects like varnish or metallic foil.

                  It could be nice to see special effects like varnish or metallic foil.

                      The current version of Boxshot loads old files quite well. Not 100% perfect (this is impossible), but not so bad. If you feel that some of your project still need better loading, please contact support directly, or create another (more concrete) idea.

                    • Transparent reflections with no background like Boxshot3D

                      Easy way needed to produce reflections on no background as BoxShot3D - so its easy to place rendered PNG in Photoshop / Illustrator over other graphics. Or some step by step to achieve exactly the same thing with the new tools (I've tried, but no familiar enough make it work...)

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • Origami - Thickness of material

                            Please - option to give origami objects a thickness so you can build out of corrugated or other materials that are not "paper", also edge properties so you can color the edge once it has a thickness. Thank you!

                                • 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…

                                      • Wall thickness!!

                                        Corrugated or just card stock material look a lot different and the thickness varies quite considerably. It would be great to show a more realistic thickness and not as if they are made out of paper.

                                        • merge other boxshot files (as in bs3d)...

                                          ...to make groups (i.e. different kind of packaging/products, same brand)
