Envelopes, boxes with punched holes, tubes

Anonymous 8 years ago updated 4 years ago 0
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:

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

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.

Control amount of open angle for books/magazines

Scott 8 years ago updated by Vitaly Ovchinnikov 1 year ago 5
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 software.

Make boxshot stay open if no files are open

Anonymous 7 years ago updated 3 years ago 0
I find myself having to open a file before closing another one in order to keep the program open. I am using osx.

You can Create a Shape-Shop where the users can buy more shapes.

Envelopes, Vehicle wraps, Presentation Folders...

Terry Veiga 8 years ago updated 5 years ago 0
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.


Render safe border (smooth shadows)

Stig Husby 8 years ago updated 3 years ago 0
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?

More file options for importing external 3D shapes, including .OBJ files.

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

Jürgen 8 years ago updated 5 years ago 0
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.
