The latest release 2023 of EngView Package & Display Designer Suite is set to debut at FESPA! Visitors can see a live demonstration of the new features and enhancements at our partner Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems’ booth A1-B30.
The new version brings an array of exciting new features and functionalities like visualization of conical objects, easier set of angles, improved 3D modeling and presentation and more. Оf course we have added new parametric structures and components in our packaging library to utilize the conical shape visualization enhancements.
Here is in more details what you can see in the latest release 2023 related to the 3D visualizations:
Folding Panels into Cones and Cylinders: Now, you can fold panels along curves, enabling the design of conical and cylindrical surfaces. By preparing the design in 2D and setting the folding in the 3D drawing, you can create single-piece products like bottleneck labels, coffee cups, and party hats, or elements of multi-part structures.
Enhanced Folding Angle Slider: The folding angle slider has been improved for better usability. It now provides more detailed information about the folding angle and allows for more precise adjustment.
As-you-go Indication of User-Facing Side: The View Side button on the 3D toolbar serves a dual purpose now. In addition to positioning a panel facing the user, it dynamically indicates the panel that is currently facing you as you rotate the model, providing visual guidance.
Combined Solid and Wireframe View: The new Solid Wired mode enables you to observe 3D models in combined solid and wireframe view. This mode emphasizes the model's edges, offering a clearer understanding of its structure.
Isometric View without Perspective Effect: A new viewing mode called Isometric View removes the perspective effect and presents 3D models in a flat, simplified state.
The EngView Packaging Library has been enriched with new designs and structures, expanding the possibilities for conical package design.
Related to drafting precision:
Precise Drafting with Construction Grids: Constructing grids on objects enhances drafting precision. These grids serve as distance markers, allowing you to draft objects at exact distances with improved accuracy.
Assisted Breaking of Overlapping Objects: When breaking overlapping objects, EngView now provides helpful hints to guide your decision-making process. The hints include information about the affected objects, such as their IDs, styles, and lengths, facilitating an informed choice.
What’s new in Design Frame and Print Presentations:
Black-and-White View for Snapshots: You can now set the view of black-and-white snapshots used in print drawings. Adjusting the settings in the 3D module enables you to customize the appearance of these snapshots, which are limited to the 3D area of print drawings.
Fixed-Ratio Scaling of Print Parts: In addition to scaling groups of parts based on the larger part, a new technique allows you to apply a specific scaling ratio, such as 1:10 or 1:5, to the print parts you desire. This precise scaling offers more flexibility and control over your print designs.
With the release of EngView Packaging Suite 2023, designers and professionals in the packaging and display industry can look forward to a more intuitive and powerful software experience.
