“… It is important to be able to differentiate oneself by offering products that are original but above all fast and appreciable to the customer, without devoting too much time to the design…”
ArtiosCAD is structural CAD software design dedicated to the creation of packaging and exhibition displays by means of parametric design.
2D Design and Exporting of 3D Models
ArtiosCAD comes with advanced 2D and 3D design tools for structural design. Using the graphical display makes the software intuitive as well as fast thanks to the set of automated tools that help increase the productivity of the designer. New packaging or exhibition display projects can presented directly to the customer in 3D. The procedure is simple and it is possible to generate 3D files with the characteristics of the material, shadow effects, etc., and then export them in different formats (AVI, Quicktime, VRML, PDF, U3D, etc.).
Library of standard models for packaging and for P.O.P. displays
ArtiosCAD provides users with a library of standard parametric models for corrugated and flat cardboard packaging and customised projects. It is also possible to download POP display exhibitor projects from the www.artioscad.net site as well as complementary items in corrugated cardboard with the ArtiosCAD Display Store (Ex 4makers) online service resulting from the collaboration between B+B and Esko. Using this portal, you can download parametric projects complete with graphics files, video editing, 3D sample, technical data sheets and much more.
Display graphic designs in 3D with STUDIO and STUDIO STORE VISUALIZER
Studio allows you to produce better graphics. Studio offers a complete solution whether you are a designer who wants to try out different ideas or a pre-press operator checking a back-match. Studio is a fast and easy way to turn your ideas into beautiful 3D images, free your creativity or impress an important customer. You can also test the visual impact of just designed packaging inside the store by creating a virtual store with Studio Store Visualizer.
Library of packaging materials
On the basis of the type of material chosen, ArtiosCAD provides all the specific data: curvature, thickness, basis weight, weight, cost, etc., which is useful for a precise and simplified design.
ArtiosCAD provides advanced and comprehensive functionality for the production of flat dies, sliding pieces, extractors, rotary dies, separating rubbers and separators. It is possible to design all these tools for any method of cutting. ArtiosCAD also automatically generates even the most complex counter matrix designs ready for production.
Video Clips with assembly instructions
For putting together and assembling projects, Artios shows each step in a video to be used for visualisation, quality control and the assembly instructions, as you can see in the video below.
Export of statements of materials for displays with multiple components
Artios draws up custom reports with a list of all parts and print settings. It includes descriptions, materials used, quantity required, dimensions, etc..
Adobe Illustrator Integration
It is possible to exchange files between ArtiosCAD and Illustrator thanks to the free Data Exchange plug-in. It prevents errors and possible file conversions in the communication between the structural and graphic designers. Import native ARD files without performing conversions while keeping all the ArtiosCAD levels and data. Export graphic and vector data in Artios while maintaining the registration between the graphics and the structural design.
Import and Export to other CAD Software and Packway
ArtiosCAD integrates into virtually any workflow. It even integrates with the Packway ERP for simpler processing of the estimate, providing all data about the material necessary for its preparation.
Canvas Design: design in a simple document
The user can create all the components in a single design structure. It is then possible to redirect the components on which the graphics are to be applied. He can separate the components according to production mode or identify all of them for the creation of a report, for database searches or for integration into a company system
