Hi there, I am struggling with creating a cylindrical label for a packaging. I have the dxf outline of the label(on the right scale) and I need to create a wrapped label. How can I get such a result? I have tried with bend but it doesn't seem to be able to curve the surface in a regular way(circle). I have tried with warp, stretch and drap surface but these tools seem to distort the actual outline, as a result the texture label cannot match it.

Any suggestion?

Hi Darren thanx for your response,

Thing is, the outline of the label, as you can see, is not a simple cylinder but has shapes on its perimeter. So I can not use the trim tool to obtain it because the projection changes the actual size of shapes. Therefore I though that create a straight surface(on which i can use the trim tool to cut out the shapes in real size), and then wrap it in a cylindrical shape, would be the best way. This has more to do with getting the exact cut out of the table on a cylindrical shape rather than apply the picture label on it. I hope I made myself clear..

cheers

Hi Mario,

Thanx for response. How did you get the perfect circle shape with the bend tool? I tried to use it but only gave me "spiral" results!

cheers

Thanks Mario.  That's exactly what I would have suggested.

For reference in case it is helpful in the future, below is an example of a label that is not purely rectangular.  You just have to save the image file as a .png so that it will retain the transparency.  Obviously this is just in the case of rendering, so if you need the actual geometry you can use the Bend tool as Mario suggested.
