    Structural design files for Visualizer

    Has anybody got any structural design files for using with Esko Visualizer i.e. ArtiosCAD, Esko Flexable Bag & Collada etc. I don't know the specifics as I have only played with the folding box shape but would like some new shapes to work with

    Cheers

    hi,
    you need first to design with artios(any standar model, for example), make then the graphic design (illustrator) and then open with Visualizer.

    If you have an intel MAC it runs great using parallels or VM ware.

    Hope that helps.

    Would VM ware + Windows 2003 be ok ?

    You really don't need ArtiosCAD, you might use Studio inside Illustrator (it's an EskoArtwork plug-in) and create structural designs that open in Visualizer with no problem.
    I believe you can find it in Esko software Suite in this same forum...

    Its ok for simple bottles and boxes. But what's about complex bottles and cans and packages too?

    It was just a suggestion... Of course, Studio cannot handle packages or boxes which are formed of more than one piece, or containers with representation of several units inside them, but in many cases it can do the job, it's cheaper than ArtiosCAD and it's available for Mac OS...

    Can anybody suggest powerful instrument for 3d modeling of bottles and packages?
    Is it something like 3d max or Cinema 4d?

    My way

    When I need a new bottle I take shots for all sides of bottle and send to my freind then he design it by 3ds Max and by 3ds Max you can export as Calloda (DAE) format, which you can use in ESKO software.

    Esko software does not accept Collada files without printable areas (in Visualizer you can only view such a file). Can this printable area be created in side programs like 3D Max?

    Hi flexoars =)

    You can easily create printable areas and/or labels in Illustrator with Esko's Studio Toolkit for Labels.

    With Designer you can even easily draw the half of the outline of the actual can, package etc. and have the plug-in create the object surface on which you then create labels.

    Check out the demo video here for better understanding:

    Oh, thanks.Its ok with simple forms, but I'm talking about complex objects which are created in 3D software. After their creation your should make such an area to be accepted by Esko software. Is it something like "UV mapping" in 3ds max and others?

    Hi all
    I'm sorry for delay because I'm too busy this period.

    When I creat complex module by 3d max and export to Calloda Its without printable area.

    And I trying to add It manually by XML editor
    because Calloda format is XML format.

    And when I discover a solution I'll put it here.
