I want to create a flat bottom gusset bag that uses a continuous file rather than having seals as different artwork can I do this?

I was trying to use the doy pack or gusseted bag but neither work. Can I create it in Origami and render it in box? Or can I get a file from somewhere else and put into box?

Unfortunately, Boxshot does not have such a shape built in. We have some fixed-size shapes like that here: https://boxshot.com/shop/bags-1/ or you can try finding out one somewhere else as a 3D model and import it to Boxshot.

What formats am I able to load into Boxshot, I tried to find that on your website and user guide but couldn't? and if I do load something in will I be able to adjust sizes etc like I can for the tube (which I LOVE by the way - it is fantastic! - I wish your gusset bag had the same control of elements it is amazing).

That's on the front page: Boxshot supports loading FBX, 3DS, STL, PLY, DXF, OBJ and Collada (DAE) files to use in scenes.

Btw, you can also try the loft shape to make such a bag, but it might be not easy: https://boxshot.com/boxshot/tutorials/advanced/loft/ (or it is what you called tube?)

Ok thanks I will have a look at loft. But origami couldn't do it? using dielines? or would it create flat so I couldn't get any volume/bulge effects? or could I do that in box? Below is tube which is what I was talking about - it is really great to be able to put in the dimensions and have it come out perfect with the labelling so thank you! 

Origami is for flat cardboard shapes, it can't do flexible bags. Give the loft shape a try, otherwise consider looking for a 3rd party model.
