In an industry that is becoming more commoditized, sign and display shops are finding that unique, 3D display projects offer higher margins. This is the reason why more and more companies are investing in ArtiosCAD for structural design. ArtiosCAD 12 brings customers many time-saving features. Its extensive library of resizable display designs helps designers so that they do not have to start from scratch designing new displays. Its Tab & Slot tool ‘assembles’ components of a display with just a few clicks. The Mate tool helps to build and visualize connected folds and multiple parts. Users can identify glue areas and corresponding targets to quickly connect designs or perform simple assembly of displays. Support for thicker materials such as papercore-board, along with correctly designing V-notches and edge bands make it easier to visualize and convert designs of this material.
Why work in a flat world if displays aren’t? Studio 12 is a unique set of tools for 3D structural design made specifically for display artwork professionals. Studio helps produce better artwork, by allowing users to virtually view 3D displays and rotate them for a complete view. Studio also lets users create exciting 3D visuals to show to clients, ranging from PDF files with 3D content to movies.
