Design packaging in 3D, in Adobe Illustrator.
Designer is the heart of Studio. It adds a 3D preview to the editor and the lets you create 3D PDF files or TIFF pack shots. Designer is available on Adobe® Illustrator®, ArtPro and PackEdge.
Now with support for complex multi-piece structures from ArtiosCAD.
Toolkit for Boxes is a plug-in for Adobe® Illustrator® to clean up die-drawings and fold them into a 3D shape. See your artwork on the box in 3D, find and correct mistakes and produce interactive 3D PDFs or TIFF pack shots.
Now with support for artwork on both sides of the sheet.
Studio for Boxes functionality:
Toolkit for Labels is a plug-in for Adobe® Illustrator® to create round objects with one or more labels. See your artwork on the label in 3D, automatically warp artwork for conical labels and produce great looking 3D PDF files.
Now with improved support for multiple labels.
Toolkit for Labels functionality:
The Studio Toolkit for Flexibles is a unique application to create 3D models of flexible packaging. In Adobe® Illustrator®, ArtPro or Package you can see your artwork on the flexible pack in 3D, find and correct mistakes, automatically create a back match and produce great-looking 3D PDF files.
All you have to do is pick a type of package and fill in the settings from the filling machine. To make the pack unique you can interact with it. See it move like the real thing. Add air and liquid filling or insert a geometric shape to mimic a candy bar, biscuit or ice cream. It’s so much faster than other modeling tools because it has built in filling and substrate knowledge.
Toolkit for Flexibles functionality:
Toolkit for Shrink Sleeves is a unique and award winning application to simulate a heat shrink sleeve around one or more objects. See in Adobe® Illustrator® how your artwork distorts, automatically apply a counter distortion and produce great looking 3D PDF files. Avoid trial-and-error. Print your shrink sleeve packaging the first time right.
Compensate for shrinking
Artwork for heat shrink packaging is the toughest. As the film shrinks, the branding and the design can be seriously compromised.
So artwork needs to be repositioned, or compensated. Without the Studio 3D view, you are working blind.
Toolkit for Shrink Sleeves functionality:
Visualizer adds the finishing touch. Its patented dynamic print visualization is able to show a wide range of substrates, printing and finishing effects in real-time.
With Visualizer you can share the results as images or interactive Collada models, which can be viewed using the Studio Viewer on desktop, android or iOS.
The real-time images in Visualizer are ultra-realistic thanks to a patented print modeling technology. Visualizer simulates the printing and finishing operations one by one, in the correct order, and on the right substrate, even for complicated luxury packaging. So what you see, doesn’t only look great, it’s also technically feasible.
