Spatial Helps Esko Shift Packaging Design from 2D to 3D

Spatial Corp, the leading provider of 3D development components for design, manufacturing and engineering applications, and Esko, a global supplier of integrated solutions for packaging, sign and display finishing, commercial printing and professional publishing, have announced the latest release of ArtiosCAD 12 with functionality enabled by 3D InterOp from Spatial. ArtiosCAD, the world’s most popular structural design software for packaging design, includes dedicated tools specifically designed for packaging professionals for structural design, product development, virtual prototyping and manufacturing.

As an Esko technology partner, Spatial offered a flexible development solution with which to improve both the performance and available features related to the import of 3D models. 3D InterOp delivers an extensible translation platform allowing 3D applications to reliably re-use external data. 3D InterOp provides the highest quality of data exchange with the ability to selectively import product structure, graphical data, geometry and semantic PMI from a variety of leading CAD and neutral formats.

Integration of 3D InterOp enabled Esko to deliver a host of 3D import enhancements including:

  • Over 50% faster performance for 3D model import
  • Selection of specific parts within an assembly for greater performance and usability
  • New support for the importing of SolidWorks, Parasolid, Unigraphics NX and Autodesk® Inventor® files and exporting of IGES, STEP, ACIS and XCGM 3D files.

“Spatial Corp strives to improve data reuse for its partners and customers. As part of that mission, 3D InterOp is designed to ensure quality data interoperability throughout the workflow,” explained Vivekan Iyengar, Director of Interoperability at Spatial. “This directly aligns with the stated requirement of ArtiosCAD 12 to assure the viability of a package further along in the supply chain.”

“Importing and exporting of native 3D models addresses an important pain-point for many of our customers, especially those in the consumer product goods and automotive segment,” stated Richard Deroo, Product Manager for Structural Design at Esko. “Adding this new functionality to ArtiosCAD based on technology from Spatial allows us to continue to add value to our packaging design solution thus protecting our customers’ investment and gaining new market opportunities. By partnering with Spatial we are able to go to market quicker with new functionality and product updates while Esko focuses on their core competency of packaging design solutions.”
