It is not actually about the front marker, it is about the folding angle. You asked Origami to face the middle part up and fold the side parts at 90 degrees, it did exactly that: the middle part is facing up, but the sides face up too, which is wrong. If you want a "top" part of the box, you need to fold the sides down, not up. Using -90 instead of 90 for creases does the job:

We're going to add a more convenient rotation tools in one of the next updates, so you can flip the shape if needed.

While waiting for us to add the layout, maybe you guys can share your templates? Either here or in the "Design showcase" forum, so other people can re-use it. Thank you :)

Looks like it depends on the way you export an SVG file from Illustrator. Try using File->Save As in the menu, then selecting SVG as the output type, then select SVG Basic 1.1 as the output profile, and finally set Decimal places field to 6 (you will need to show more options for that). The output SVG will be loaded well by Boxshot.

We'll see what can be done for SVG files exported with File->Export option.

This one is simple, have a look here:

Boxshot expects the outline path to be solid, so it can make a single curve out of all the segments. In your case you have some segments disconnected:

After fixing the path you get a nice bottle shape in Boxshot:

I'll have a look if we can join path segments better, but it is always a good idea to have a solid single path for loading to Lathe objects.

PS: A little hack. Lathe editor requires a single path and doesn't show your SVG file if it has more than one segment. However, Extrude shape has no such limitation, so you can try loading your SVG there and see what Boxshot loads. Your path looks solid there, but once you try moving points around, you'll quickly notice that there are more than just one segment there - the vertical line is a separate object. Sometimes this can give a quick idea of what to fix.

Thanks for reporting this, we'll have a look into that.

Hello Mark,

I afraid there is no way to get the current snapshot out of Koru. Especially providing that you can move the camera manually and move the shapes with JavaScript, there is no way for Koru to track if the snapshot is current or not.

On the other hand you still have JavaScript around, so you can easily remember the snapshot you clicked by adding a special class or attribute to its name and then highlight it by that attribute/class with CSS. This doesn't sound too complicated for me, just like another HTML/CSS menu, there are plenty of example around.


You probably need to add a "top" marker. See here for more details.

Sure, we probably need to add some effects tutorials. Here is a good place to start: - it is for Boxshot, but it explains the basic principles that can also be applied to Koru.

You can also try a built-in hot foil material:

Basically, you need a base (diffuse) texture, reflection mask and a heightmap for relief. Then it is all about fine-tuning parameters until it looks perfect. Let me know if the information above doesn't help, as it may take time to make a detailed tutorial.

Sure, you can do this here:

Also have a look at this tutorial especially the medium color section for better control of the liquid color.
