It lets you create exciting 3D visuals to show your client, ranging from PDF files with 3D content, to movies, a virtual pack shot or to a shopping shelf.

Esko’s virtual mock-up software comes with patented dynamic 3D print visualization. Render 3D packaging mock-ups with a wide range of substrates, printing and finishing effects in real-time.

The software simulates the printing and finishing operations one by one, in the correct order, and on the right substrate. So what you see doesn’t only look great, it’s also technically feasible.
