Update: Computer Softwares Tips - Basic Modeling and UV Mapping a Cigarette Box With Maya

First step is to manually measure the Height, Width and Depth of a cigarette box. Measures are Height = 8.5, Width = 5.5 and Depth = 2.2, because we want to keep the right proportions of cigarette box.

Next step is to create a cube and set measures stated above. Then go to left or right view and then use the Cut the Faces Using a Plane tool, when you select the Cut theFaces Using a Plane tool click and hold the left mouse button to perform cutting a plane. When you do this you will get the following result (picture below).

You probably will not cut the planes exactly the way you wanted (like in the picture above) but it is the quickest way to do it, so go on and adjust vertices to get better result.

When you adjust newly created vertices ( ones painted yellow in the below picture, one vertex is not showing in picture so be sure to adjust that vertex too) you will get the result showing below.

So that’s it for the modeling part, now we go on for UV mapping...
