EngView Showcases Latest Packaging Software Innovations at drupa 2024

"Once again, drupa - the No. 1 event for printing and packaging technologies - proved to be the place for success." This statement was shared by many in the packaging and printing industry after attending this huge, busy and vibrant event, held in Dusseldorf, Germany, from May 28 to June 7.

Our EngView team flew in from around the globe, with representatives from the USA, Latin America, Germany, and our home base in Bulgaria. The anticipation was high, as it had been eight years since the last drupa. Despite only 15 of us being present in Dusseldorf, the entire EngView team played a vital role in our preparation, from delivering new software versions and creating demo scenarios to managing logistics and even folding giveaways :) .

Our booth featured a unique knowledge tree symbolizing our 25 years of experience in the packaging industry. This tree represented our commitment to learning and growing alongside our customers, integrating their insights and our expertise into EngView software with cutting-edge technology and the minds of brilliant mathematicians.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to the talented individuals who helped us design and construct our sustainable booth:

  • Maximilian Hansen from Nordwerk Design brought our tree concept to life.
  • Einar Ek from Re-board Technology supplied the lightweight, sustainable 16mm premium material. We used Re-board for all booth furniture, including the front desk, box and poppy displays, back walls, storage room, and shelves. Everything was made from fully recyclable paperboard, minimizing environmental impact.
  • Daniеl van Vliet from Van Vliet Printing BV expertly printed and cut the Re-board.

Our booth attracted numerous visitors eager to learn more about EngView software for the design and production of packaging and POP displays. We reconnected with many partners during the show, including machine producers, software providers, and web-to-print solutions.

At drupa 2024, we had the opportunity to meet professors from esteemed educational institutions we currently partner with, such as the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia, Vrij Instituut voor Secundair Onderwijs (VISO) in Belgium, the University of Novi Sad in Serbia, and Marmara University in Turkey, and those we are soon to donate our software to. We believe that sharing our packaging knowledge with the next generation of talented designers is crucial for the future of our industry.

Throughout the 11 days of the show, we continuously demonstrated EngView software at our booth. Additionally, every day at 14:30, Kris Hanchette from our team gave live demos at Hybrid Software's booth, showcasing the cutting-edge EngView packaging software and its seamless integration with HYBRID Software.

Kris Hanchette, VP Sales North America, shared: "For EngView Systems, this show was an incredible success. We spent valuable time with current customers and met many new ones. It was an excellent venue to build our partnerships. Many of us are based around the world, and this was a great opportunity for the team to strengthen our relationships and learn from each other."

Tsvetelina Nacheva, Marketing Manager of EngView, commented on the successful show: "Events like drupa are important for us because they bring us closer to our customers, the industry, and our users. It's a good reality check to hear our customers' problems and provide solutions that optimize their workflow. Sometimes, we figure out the solution together with designers, determining which tasks to automate and which processes to optimize to make their work easier and more efficient."

EngView customers from around the world visited our booth to learn about the latest software developments. Here are the new features we demonstrated at drupa 2024:

Art3D - New Solution for Easier Graphic Design of Boxes

EngView Art3D is designed to help graphic designers create packaging artwork more easily. Integrated with Adobe Illustrator, Art3D allows designers to turn any vector drawing into a 3D structure. This tool is ideal for freelance designers without CAD software experience, enabling them to create 3D models from dielines downloaded from the internet or provided by end customers. Art3D works with any vector format, and designers can also use EngView's library of thousands of ready-to-use parametric templates.

EngView Package & Display Designer 2024 - Online, Augmented, Intelligent

With our continuous release policy, we release new versions every few months, ensuring customers receive the latest features, usability enhancements, and bug fixes promptly. We are committed to staying at the forefront of technology, incorporating the latest advancements to offer a competitive advantage.

Here are the most recent improvements in EngView packaging software demonstrated at drupa:

Library Search by Application: All packaging and display templates are now in a single online space. Users can search the library index by code, template name, or application type, such as chocolate, pizza, or toothpaste box.

Nesting and Layout Optimizations: New features include nesting on rolled material and tracking leftover material for subsequent jobs. Sheet sizes are now directly visible on the screen.

Drafting: Designers can duplicate 2D drawings together with the 3D visualizations and folding sequences, saving time in creating 3D models and animations anew after edits. 

Video Export of 3D Animation: Export 3D model animations as .mp4 files for use on websites or social media, including mobile devices.

EngView Shared Space - Augmented Reality Feature: This feature allows customers to see 3D mock-ups in real environments using their mobile phone or tablet camera. They can see how the packaging or display will look in the store.

With the latest release of EngView Package & Display Designer, we continue our mission to help structural and graphic designers turn their ideas into reality!

Drupa 2024 was an incredible experience, allowing us to connect with current and new industry partners, including machine producers, software providers, and educational institutions. We were thrilled to share our software developments and future plans with like-minded professionals.
