    What about this Online Packaging Design tool ?

    Hi guys, I just discovered this site:
    https://www.pack.ly

    I think it is amazing!!! Custom size generator, and looks professional.

    They says:GENERATE YOUR CUSTOM DIES IN ANY SIZE YOU WANT
    Choose your preferred shape and customize the size according to your needs.
    Create and download professional, highly accurate die-cuts in just a few steps. You can download the die-cut templates in PDF format, ready to be imported into your vector graphics software (Packly recommends Adobe Illustrator Ā®).

    I tried with illustrator and it works very well, very accurate, it changes with thickness too....

    Is there anyone ArtiosCad expert or similar that can confirm if the dieline generated is good for production too?

    I'm very excited

    From the first look, the templates looks good. Though i couldn't download it, because you have to create an account.. maybe someone could upload a pdf file? Then I could check it more accurately.

    I just signed up and created, it's very smooth process, just need to enter a valid email.

    I generated online "Crash Lock bottom box" (I think the most sophisticate) using these sizes:
    Width: 122mm - Depth: 75 - Height: 170
    Substrate Custom thickness: 0.7mm


    Here the PDF file I got:

    and the screenshoot is attached

    This site has many problemm I do not advise to use it for die cutting.

    If you are profesional you will find problem at all styles.

    Thank you Roman for your feedback, very appreciated.

    Good to see that it's just a small detail where anyone can build different. So not a big issue.
    May be, since they are offering the online printing service, for their technology it works well.

    Anyway, I generated several die-line files really in SECONDS (and I believe that is the key) I asked to cut on a kongsberg / zund table and even our suppliers was very surprised about the results.

    I think it is a great starting point to help everyone (especially graphic designers) to get a pretty reliable structural packaging template.

    After all, it is still possible to do adjustments based on die-line manufacturing needs, but I assume that are small fixes that do not compromise any graphic design work.

    I saw online others template generators and I think this is definitely the BEST one, very accurate and professional output.

    the site is a joke!!!

    you can only generate small boxes.
    e.g. try to generate a lid and tray box for 30 cm x 30 cm x 10 cm!
    there is no max. value shown but you are told that the maximum size is exceeded!

    on the main page they say:
    GENERATE YOUR CUSTOM DIES IN ANY SIZE YOU WANT!
    so they are liars!
