Elements Are Too Small
You might get this warning if your dieline path looks like this:
Each of these small elements must be analyzed, converted to straight segments and then transferred to 3D mesh. Besides being time and CPU consuming this also applies to cutting real paper, as all those little cuts must be done there, too.
Consider analyzing all the locations Origami highlights and check if you really need those extra vertices there. Simplifying the paths helps removing the warning and usually makes the dieline better.
Want More Hints?
- Empty Layout — why there is no dieline visible?
- Path Is Not Closed — the dieline needs a solid, continuous outline path;
- Intersecting Holes — holes must not overlap;
- Overlapping Lines — cut and crease lines must not overlap, as well;
- Outside Hole — all holes must be inside the outline path;
- Invalid Crease — crease lines have limitations;
- Almost Vertical/Horizontal — crease line is probably misaligned;
- Impossible Shape — some shapes simply don’t exist;
- Misaligned Elements — ends must meet, perfectly;
- Elements Are Too Small — keep dieline paths simple;
- Interesting Curved Cuts — it might not be easy;
- Triangulation Failed — Origami fails to make a 3D mesh of a dieline;
- Z–Fighting — what to do with overlapping polygons.
