build a slightly raised lid​​

silvia.dinatale 3 years ago updated 3 years ago 3

Hello everybody,

I would like to perfect the lid of a folding box. It should be slightly raised (see attached picture). 

I´ve tried to build the lid as a separate element. I´ve imported the curve for the increase as extruded svg and pulled in the appropriate width and deep.

The problem is that no matter what option I choose, the artwork of the lid is not applied correctly.

How do i get my artwork imaged correctly at the top/lid?

Or is there a solution to design a slightly raised lid without using Origami or other programs?


Sorry, I forgot the picts! 


Hello Silvia,

You can override UV mapping on the extruded object to fit the artwork on its side like this:

Depending on your needs, you can also try using "Label" object for making a curved plane in Boxshot. It might take some time to match the label diameter and position, but on the other hand you'll get UV mapping working automatically.

Thank you! It works!
