Die making in ArtiosCAD 14

ArtiosCAD is the world’s most popular structural design software for packaging design. With dedicated tools specifically designed for packaging professionals for structural design, product development, virtual prototyping and manufacturing, ArtiosCAD increases productivity throughout your company.


Efficient sheet layouts

ArtiosCAD allows you to build sheet layouts quickly. What’s more, it automatically suggests optimal layouts with the lowest cost. The proposed solutions can be sorted by variables such as ‘sheet waste’, and ‘number of designs on the sheet’. ‘Near miss’ solutions that require a small reduction in the design are also shown, allowing designers to make minor adjustments to achieve the most efficient layout and reduce costs.


Automated tooling design


ArtiosCAD provides powerful and comprehensive features for the production of dies, counters, stripping sets, rotary tooling, ejection rubber profiles and blankers.

You can design dieboards and stripping sets ready for the laser. Quickly build rotary tooling (including die splits, rule paths and bridging on teeth) ready for any output including lasers and die saws.

ArtiosCAD automatically generates complex counter designs ready for production, including one-piece steel counters. Ejection rubber profiles for cutting dies are generated with a single mouse click with the automatic, optimized cutting layout of the rubber profiles. ArtiosCAD also includes a complete set of blanking tools to create steel, flat-top, grid and combo blankers.
