How to Create 3D Product Packaging in Cinema 4D With FoldMyDesign
Find out how to use Cinema 4D’s FoldMyDesign helper object to easily create 3D product packaging animations using your 2D nets.

Matt Umney from Maxon UK explains how to use FoldMyDesign within Cinema 4D R19. Please Note: FoldMyDesign is available in the Visualize and Studio versions of C4D only.

Matt says, “FoldMyDesign is a helper object found within MAXON Cinema 4D’s Content Browser for Visualize and Studio. It takes your Adobe Illustrator paths and converts them into separate splines.

It’s a great tool that lets you use your own net design directly within Cinema 4D without having to remodel things. And as you can also animate the folding, you can turn your simple still into an interesting animation.”

What you will learn:

  • How to export nets drawn in Adobe Illustrator and open them in Cinema 4D.
  • How to find FoldMyDesign and the process to turn your nets into a 3D foldable model.
  • How to animate your model.
