Award winning IC3D Suite features 3D modeling capabilities, the industry’s fastest shrink correction, and native PDF artwork handling
Dover, DE, USA (September 8, 2015) – Next week, a Live Design Challenge descends on Olympia, London at the 2015 Packaging Innovations Show (September 16th-17th). The challenge theme involves three design groups battling it out on stage in a timed competition to create a rugby carton for the impending Rugby World Cup. Taking center stage is the revolutionary 3D packaging and design software, IC3D Suite. A 2014 recipient of the InterTech™ Technology Award, IC3D Suite provides users the ability to easily create 3D models, apply artwork in real-time and ultimately visualize how a final package will appear before reaching production.
During the competition the audience will participate as well. They’ll drive the carton’s look by having designers change colours, size, text and overall look of the design at the last minute. Whatever they suggest, the design groups have to do! The final designs are limitless as IC3D Suite shows special effects like metallic foils accurately on screen, and a direct link to Adobe Illustrator ensures seamless communication of artwork files onto models.
Once a winner is selected, show attendees can see further capabilities of IC3D Suite in the ORIS Packaging Innovations booth (F2). While a carton is selected for the competition, IC3D caters to an extensive range of packaging types from flexible films to bottles, non-cylindrical shapes and more. Once a package design is completed, primary and secondary packaging can then be placed onto shelves, into a POS or even animated. Everything created in IC3D Suite can then be shared with customers or team members via hi-res images, 3D PDFS, movie files and even augmented reality.
Current users are saying the following about IC3D Suite:
- “IC3D Suite was easy to learn. No need for previous 3D training or experience.”
- “We use IC3D Suite to show our clients how their finished products will appear in-store.”
- “Our team was able to drop weeks off our packaging development calendar while also eliminating the need for multiple rounds of physical proofs.”
- “IC3D is a great complement to our existing group of tools. Fastest shrink in the industry!”
Live demonstrations are available throughout the show, and more information about IC3D Suite is available at www.creativeedgesoftware.com.
