I am wondering if there is an Adobe solution to turning a custom dieline from an art file in Illustrator (not always a simple box or carton) into a textured 3D obj? I have only found an obscure beta program where this might have been played around with in Dimension. Our workflow currently uses Origami (a plugin that creates folded boxes/cartons based on a dieline in Illustrator) as an intermediary between Illustrator and C4D (our rendering solution). Is there some way to use Dimension or maybe another Adobe application instead of Origami? Dimension is nice and all, but I feel incredibly limited in what you can do, but I may be wrong. It would be nice if there was even a solution/plugin for C4D, but haven't come accross anything either.
Just wanted to add to this, I am aware of the "Fold My Design" script in C4D, but it takes quite a while of prep since most dielines are broken up into individual pieces. Mostly looking for a fast alternative to Origami.
