pump top bottle for boxshot ultimate

todd 5 months ago updated by Vitaly Ovchinnikov 5 months ago 5

Im creating a pump top bottle. I've attached a photo of the bottle I need to create. Also attached is a screenshot of your plastic bottles set. Is this the set I need to create a pump top bottle? Thanks!

I don't think that set will help you to make that pump. These are just pre-created models that you can easily customize with your artwork as long as their shape satisfies your needs. In your case, the pump looks somewhat different, so the set will hardly work for you.

You can compose the most of the pump using lathe or loft shapes, then make a nose using extrude shape. Another option is to find a 3rd-party 3d pump model somewhere and import it to Boxshot scene - that will work better if you need a realistic nose design. Otherwise I would go with loft + extrude option.

GOOD, I'M SATISFIED

I found a 3rd party pump. I can load it in easily enough. My question is I cant seem to isolate the bottle part to apply the label. I've tried it as a decal and it places it over the entire object. Is there a way to be able to isolate parts the object? I have a .obj file and a 3ds file of this bottle

Decals are the way to go, unless the label fully wraps the bottle. Decals have scaling parameter that helps to resize them.

Another option would be to use Boxshot 5 that lets you hide some parts of the imported shape and combine the pump with the loft/lathe-based bottle, where you have more control over materials.

So in Boxshot 5 i can hide parts of my lathed shape and apply the label art (texture) to wrap that specific part? I've attached a bottle I made using the lathe. As you can see my label wraps over the entire bottle. I want it to wrap around the center area only indicated by the red line and hide the top and bottom areas.

You need to assign a different material to the part that you want to put the label on. See the "Materials" section here: https://boxshot.com/boxshot/tutorials/advanced/lathe/
