ArtiosCAD: Unrivaled in structural packaging design

ArtiosCAD Preflight
Quality control for your
structural designs

With varying experience levels of design staff, structural design decisions can often cause die cutting inefficiencies. These decisions can turn out to be costly. An optimal structural design, however, reduces your setup time and boosts die press speeds.

An industry first

ArtiosCAD is the leading structural design applicaton for folding carton and corrugated packaging. ArtiosCAD 20 features an Industry first: ArtiosCAD Preflight will analyze your structural designs and flags all quality issues.

This patent-pending technology alerts packaging designers of potential production issues in their structural designs before the design is released to estimating or production.


ArtiosCAD Preflight is an option that can be added to any perpetual or subscription license of ArtiosCAD. It cannot be used as a standalone product.

How does it work?

ArtiosCAD Preflight performs a number of checks on the structural design:

  • File import checks:
    Examines the structural integrity of imported designs and finds anomalies in the design that will impede production.
  • Production checks:
    Checks whether the structural design meets the requirements of the intended production machine.
  • Product quality checks:
    Finds design features that can negatively affect the folding, gluing or stacking of the finished package.
  • Die press performance checks:
    Automatically finds design features that may have a negative impact on the operational speed of the die press.
