You get the "square" shadow because of the backside of your object which is still opaque. To compute shadows, Boxshot checks if the light source is visible from the point where the shadow is computed. If you rotate the camera and see your shape from behind, I bet you will see the square shape. Try applying the same artwork to the backside to get the proper shadow.

Or you can use the "Extrude" shape and load an SVG file from Illustrator to get a 3D model of your shape with all the details.
