The 3D function of KASEMAKE allows the designer to fold the design on screen for the following purposes
- Structural Assessment – Checking that the design makes up correctly, and that all panels align and fit without needing to make a physical sample.
- Artwork Check – By importing artwork onto the design and then folding the structure, it is possible to check that the artwork has been generated correctly, and that images appear on the appropriate panels with correct orientation.
- Sales Presentation - High resolution 3D stills can be created to give the customer an understanding of how the package will look. Animations can be recorded to see the design folding. Output formats include JPEG and AVI so any customer can view them without the need for specialist software.
During the folding process, a designer can take a series of ‘snap-shots’. These stills can then be combined and annotated to easily produce assembly diagrams.
An even more realistic appearance can be achieved with the use of a 3D environment. Create a virtual store or simply use a background image from a digital camera.
