Multiple Origami Suggestions

Greg Beckemeier 6 years ago updated 4 years ago 0
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 using matrix on the cutting plate.
3. Ability to enter numerical values for the XYZ axes before exporting still shots, so you can be consistent when putting together marketing materials.
4. Ability to set the DPI when exporting 3D models and still shots. The still shots currently leave a lot to be desired.
5. Transparency when exporting to tif or png.

Looks like we've done everything except for the curve crease lines, but there is a separate suggestion for that. Closing this one for now.
1. in new origami is thickness of paper ?
2. yes it looks well, keyshot have the same option in object meny, I suppouse that it should be BoxShot feature, not Origami
3. Try look at BoxShot as Esko Vizualizer with Studio, and Origami as Studio for Boxes, when Ypu setup camera and light at BoxShot you change only linked model and its looks the same
4. and 5. again, postproces files at BoxShot


generaly I use Origami to setup model on the begining of work, and use BoxShot to verify design etc.... working live at illustrator. BoxShot can have render window at the top. I would like to not duplicate features between Origami and BoxShot - together they are complementary and makes it strong with features. If not we will focus on duplicate the same functions between them not to develop new features

BTW
I looked at IC3D and RealVue software - nice peace of work, special IC3D and Shrink Wrap but price... as Esko - not for designers .. maybe production firm can afford for it. When You wrote about 4000 for Designer I rather say 9000 when You ad Vizializacer, Studio, Box and Felexibles. The best is that BoxShot can do most of they features (not all :) and have few extra new as example very easy usage of external files, in Vizualizer I must edit .dae files in text editors :)
Curved creases are the only thing it still doesn't support it does all of the above.
BTW Esko lower their prices to above 250Eu/monthly for boxes label and vizualizer pack. IC3D did the same price on all studio modules
