  1. Save material texture only in Origami

    When editing a graphics in Illustrator that would update the material in origami, it would be great if we were able to export just the texture file and not have to export the whole model to get it. This would be useful when you have already designed and created the boxshot file and you just need to update the texture. I know that I can just export the 3d file again and delete what I don't need but if it gets worked into a future release that would be great.

      You can export directly from Illustrator, just click File→Export and check “Use artboards”, also make sure that “Use whole artboard” option is set in Origami. This way you can easily replace the artwork without re-exporting the model. It also help to get higher resolution exports or extra channels/mask if neccessary.

      Let me know if it helps.

    • dieline

      The dieline generator needs to branch out into its own dedicated software. I only bought Origami to have access to it, as the individual $10/dieline was too expensive. I'd happily pay $99 for a standalone software, as there's nothing else like it on the market, unless you want to spend thousands. From there, you should add many more templates.

        • Save/combine states/snapshots of angles in Origami -> Boxshot

          When I create a multiple fold direct mailer I create different stages of it opening by adjusting just the angles of the folds. When I take those stages into Boxshot they are seperate files. It would be great if I could save the angle information as a step in the animation and when I am in BoxShot I can just slide the animation slider and it will cycle thru the different preset stages of my Origami file. That would be a huge time saver!

          • GUI controls for folding angles & animated folding

            GUI or animated folding. Controls for adjusting the the fold angles realtime and an animation demonstrating the fold-up would be helpful for clients or printers

                • Adjust paper thickness in templates and allow saving of created templates

                  When choosing a existing template, make adjustment for paper thickness. Also a library with created templates, where you can save, import or edit templates.

                  • plastic material

                    Hello, I am working on a folding carton box made out of plastic. Any way you could support this material in about an 18pt thickness?

                    • angle of view

                      Add also a "normal" angle of view. Often we use a perspective with straight vertical sides.

                      • Run origami in background so you can still continue to use illustrator

                        Some of the files that we fold up are large so we have to stop using illustrator while original thinks.

                        • Posibilty of setting the paper thickness allready in dieline creator

                          When creating a new dieline, the board thickness should be possible to set, so that the file created takes the board thickness into account, so that the fold at e.g. the lid, does actually go 1 x board-thickness higher, than the dustflap, to make it possible to close the box.
                          The thicker paper/board or corrugated, the bigger an issue.

                          • Look at your tuck-flap closures - they are incorrect in all instances.

                            Your tuck flap closures are incorrect in all instances - instead of being a dead split along the lid, they should angle across and then up to capture the slits in the tuck flap (which is also incorrect, should be inset by the width of the card)

                            • Fix overlapping rendering

                              If I have 2 perfectly overlapping sides/panels I'd like to be able to tell Origami which one I want on top of the other.
                              Such as a simple "TOP SIDE" label could do.

                                it Would be vry good if in Origami, it could be indicated where a gap exists in a box design... i Receive die cut designs from our manufacturers in china every day and though i have been partially succesful in instructing them to create origami -ready die cuts, many times, when testing their designs,it turns out that the outline isn't completely closed and it takes me forever to check the illustrator file for these gaps.

                                  Dear Origami, you software is easy to use and does what it’s made for. Just one small gap: add a feature to make it possible to create curved packagings. That would be great!

                                  • Posibility of "for machine packaging" in dieline creator

                                    The current dieline creator can make boxes for manual packaging. For machine packaging a small slit is needed along the lid and the dust panels, for better manoeuvring in the packaging machines.
                                    Therefore this option should be available, so that the system can create files that are also usable for productions that are to be packed on machines.

                                    • Cut & fold inks

                                      Since imported inside ILLUSTRATOR CAD files usually have their own inks linked to cut/fold-lines, it could be really useful the ability to use those existing inks in ORIGAMI instead of straight and dashed lines.

                                        Origami would be incredible if it worked with InDesign also.

                                          http://package-in.com/fefco-style-boxes/

                                          its useful when we have many bottles in box
