Hi all,

I'm currently busy with a packaging design project. Is there a way to import my own packagings in Adobe Dn.

I designed a serie of shampoo bottle's and matching cartons in Solidworks. But the main problem is that i can't make a .obj file directly.

If I export to a stl and then by using meshlab to a .obj, i get one object instead of a bottle and a bottlelid. Which have a different color ofcourse.

Need your help!

Hi Marteen!  If you can send a sample .obj then we can see why the different groups aren't being respected on import and fix that.  You can send it to tickets@adobedimension.com (confidential, will not share, for debugging only).  If you can't get them as separate objects on import you can use the Magic Wand tool to select the pieces.  Just set the tolerance to "Large" and then make a selection and it will break down the pieces for you to apply materials.

  1. your bottle obj can be one object made up of two parts i.e, the lid can be black medal and the body a tinted glass
  2. import the poor quality obj into Photoshop first then export it as a wavefont obj from Photoshop... gives best possible result but a very low quality obj can only improve so much then you have to make a better one
