I'm trying to learn how to make 3D Box Images in Photoshop. I need this for box designs of different sizes, and so I found this tutorial that makes it easy to create with the use of Photoshop Actions.

Also, is there ANY software (free/paid) that can let me create these boxes hassle-free? Any Action/script/template in Photoshop that can let me change the dimensions as per requirement?

If software requires payment, please could you suggest any software within $25 range cause I don't intend to pay for a one time use for only a few boxes.

    Ok here are couple of apps that should be useful to you: pixologic and wings 3D. Both free :-) – user8241 Apr 24 '15 at 8:31
  • Ok. Thanks! I've downloaded Wings 3D, will install it later. Thanks again! – mk117 Apr 24 '15 at 11:17

    That's alright. Hope it will do what you need it too! – user8241 Apr 27 '15 at 8:30

Gimp is free and includes 3D transformations and scripting in either python or script-fu. You should be able to replate the workflow that you already have in such a script and have it prompt you for the dimensions and/or text, etc. reasonably simply.
