Inspiring 3D creativity for packaging designers
IC3D Suite from Creative Edge is the world’s first real-time 3D package visualization and design software that streamlines proofing and prototyping for enhanced collaboration, customer satisfaction and savings.
Staying competitive is tricky business. You want to set yourself apart, and being able to take a product package from concept to shelf as quickly and smoothly as possible is an ongoing challenge. IC3D Suite revolutionizes package creation, reducing time spent on 3D mock-ups and prototypes.
3D Mock-ups Made Easy
If you’re familiar with Adobe® Illustrator®, using IC3D Suite will be second nature. Package designers won’t be faced with massive learning curves or downtime trying to get up to speed. IC3D Suite includes a model library of common packaging models which can be selected by simply dragging and dropping into the workspace. IC3D links directly into Illustrator so you can take your 2D artwork and map it onto your 3D model as base artwork or labels.
Anything you create in IC3D Suite can be shared with your customers or department staff for comments and markup. Output high-resolution images or 3D PDFs for sharing by email, or create an animation with the built-in Movie exporter. You can even output IC3D models to any 3D printer to create rapid prototypes.
Real-time 3D Environments
The end results matter for your customers and now you can show them how their product packaging looks when placed on a grocery store shelf or other retail environments in real time. IC3D Suite generates the required 3D shaders immediately to correctly render all changes to models, materials and environments on the fly. There’s no need to wait while your display updates, changes are applied in real-time, meaning you can instantly tweak them to create the effect you are looking for.
IC3D Suite has a patented Smart Wrap function which allows labels and artwork to be slid/wrapped and placed accurately onto complex 3D models without the need for tedious UVW mapping of texture coordinates. This means the software works the way you’d expect it to, want to change the placement of artwork or labels? Click and slide into place, it’s that easy!
And so much more…
Amaze and impress your clients! With flexible packet filling, real-time shadows, reflections and the ability to stage complex dynamic scenes using multiple packaging types, you will find IC3D Suite to be a complete package at an affordable price!
Also available — the new IC3D Carton Edition
IC3D Carton Edition is a new product which takes all the carton, dieline, lighting, template and animation functions from IC3D Suite, but in an affordable package specifically tailored for carton designers and packaging professionals. New features include import of DXF and CFF2 dielines from leading CAD packages including ArtiosCAD, while maintaining previously specified cut and fold information. Best of all, IC3D Carton Edition can be simply upgraded to IC3D Suite when you are ready, with the same familiar “look and feel” interface.
