What Is This?

The plugin does just one thing: it takes your artwork and computes a perfect envelope mesh distortion, so the result fits a conical surface of the dimensions you provided.

I got it too!
Looks simple enough to use, not a lot of controls.
I've had to distort these guys by hand using the warp tool.
We'll see if this is easier or pretty much the same.

Thanks Joe!

Its not free.    :sad:

"You need to purchase a licence in order to use the plugin"

BTW I wondered what you might need a conical label for and all I came up with was
1) Bottle Neck Promo and
2) Butt Plug

If you follow the link under the I tab it will show this:

QuoteGet Conical Label License
Here comes the best part, as the plugin is still in beta and we really need your feedback, so here is the deal: we provide a free limited-time license, you provide the feedback. Win/win for both of us, all we need is your name, email and some information. The key will be sent there and we'll have a talk in a couple of days.

So yes as I said it is free for now. So you can get your time limited license for free and if you find it useful you can buy it later when it isn't free.

not sure if I will ever use it, like I said, there are virtually no controls other than just changing the width of the top and bottom.

Interesting tho, I would like to learn more of the 3D tool
I used it but I'm kinda fumbley with it

Useful for distortion where the top and bottom of the product are cylindrical with varying circumference, such as ice cream tubs etc. Some elements should not be distorted though, such as barcodes, eyespots etc. The trick will be in working out the correct dimensions to enter, is it based on the overall product, independent of where the label is placed, is it dependent on the area placed etc. Will likely require 3D software testing and or physical mockup to ensure that the distortion is correct.
