Learn about adding a primitive object and changing its proportions.
- In this tutorial, we're going to take this flat artwork created in Illustrator, and wrap it around a box to make it look like a real cereal box standing on the table. I've sized the artwork so that the relative proportions are one wide, one point five high, and the piece that goes around the size is point five wide. So once you've got it in Illustrator, you need to export it as a Ping file. We can select it all, and we can use the export panel to export it.
And I've already done this for you. We'll look more at the export panel later. For now, let's go to dimension, and see how we can make a cube to wrap this around. And the cube we want is not this one at the top, because, as you can see, that has a flap coming over it. Let's delete that. But this simple cube, further down. And that is a much more straightforward cube.
Let's size it. So we've got it selected, and in the scale, remember we want one wide, one point five units high, and point five deep. Hit the "Enter" key, and there's our box now sized the right dimensions. Let's grab the hand tool and drag the cameras down, so we can see the whole cube.
Next, we'll go on to see how we can apply our decal to this, to make it look like a real box.
