3D MODEL CREATION
No matter what inspires you, bring it to life with iC3D Suite and the extensive iC3D Model and Template Libraries. If your vision doesn’t have a template, use the iC3D Shape Modeller feature and build it exactly as desired.
With Shape Modeller, designers and packaging engineers can create any type of asymmetrical packaging such as molded containers, perfume bottles, flexible bags, tins & trigger sprays. Then simply drag them into the scene and add artwork.
REAL TIME EDITING OF ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR ARTWORK
Collaboration in iC3D and Adobe Creative tools means you can work seamlessly and watch your vision take shape. Create labels or base artwork within iC3D, and automatically display them in Illustrator so you can add artwork to the document and interactively slide them in real time on the model.
You can also drag and drop materials from the extensive materials library onto the model surface to create special effects like foil, metallic and more.
SHRINK & SHRINK CORRECTION
Applying a shrink-wrap foil on single or multiple items can be a difficult task. Due to iC3D’s accuracy and unprecedented speed, applying complex shrink-wraps can be accomplished in a matter of seconds.
Smart Shrink functionality quickly and accurately visualises how artwork and labels will distort when “Shrunk” onto 3D models using different shrink film products. Amazingly fast Shrink & Shrink Correction takes minutes compared to existing processes which can take hours or even days.
3D ENVIRONMENTS, LIGHTING & SHADOWS
iC3D supports Image Based Lighting and ultra hi-resolution HDRI environments which calculate accurate and realistic lighting effects on packaging, in-store and on shelves.
iC3D also provides added realism by accentuating surface details and adding soft shadows using Ambient Occlusion. Complete studio lighting effects can be replicated by adding lights and controlling shadows, together with simple sliders to adjust shadow position, opacity, softness and fade.
COMPLEX SCENE STAGING
All of the above easily comes together allowing for real -time staging of complex and dynamic scenes using cross discipline packaging types.
Shelf Visualizer can compare product revisions and competitors products on single shelves, gondolas, chiller and freezer displays. The results can be saved and exported as high resolution renders, 3D PDFs, print proofs, animated movies, viewed using our free 3D viewer or even printed on 3D printers.
