What's new in Version 7

Version 7 offers several major functionalities and improvements that accelerate the design and pre-production process. It wraps up the graphic design workflow resulting in production files with high resolution graphics. Moreover, the new version is 64 bit, which ensures better performance and stability of the software when working with large multipart structures or when working on several projects at the same time.

Master canvas

For display designers, who want to create multipart structures in a single drawing, Version 7 offers a Master canvas. It allows designers to draft using relations between objects from different parts of a display.

Pillow pack and 3D web sharing

With Version 7 designers can visualize the 3D folding of curved creases of pillow pack. The release also supports new file formats for: 3D exports ( Web 3D and Collada files) and 3D imports ( IGES and STEP).
Customers can view, animate and approve projects in a web browser.


EngView Package & Display Designer introduces articles - sets of front and rear graphic designs of a single-part structure. Articles provide quick visualization of the different artworks in 3D, both in the EngView software and in the integration with Adobe® Illustrator®. With a single click, designers can switch between 3D views of the graphic design variants. Articles also find a good application in the layout, where designers can define which articles will be printed and optimize the production run accordingly.

Generating production files with high-resolution images

The new version further automates the pre-production workflow by extending the integration with Adobe® Illustrator®. Graphic designers can now open the EngView-generated layout in Adobe® Illustrator® and automatically multiply the high-resolution graphics over the dieline using masks and bleeds.

Single-sheet nesting and layout optimization features

Optimize your production run with single-sheet nesting. Fit two or more one-ups in one sheet. The system shows part statistics and suggests how to better optimize the sheet based on the desired quantities for each one-up.

Further layout optimization features include edge detection and swap functionality. Edge detection allows the insertion of new parts to the generated layout and prevents the overlapping of graphics taking sheet borders into account. A swap functionality switches the places of two groups of one-ups without producing conflicts.
