Esko Graphics ArtiosCAD v7.02


Structural Designers Focus More Energy on Innovation

Esko-Graphics' Design Life-Cycle Management solution helps structural designers quickly and efficiently create innovative folding carton packaging for consumer products companies (CPCs).

Design Life-Cycle Management is a comprehensive software and hardware solution that manages the collaboration, communication, and execution of packaging from ideation through delivery. It features design tools that remove workflow inefficiencies, enabling structural designers to devote more time to develop compelling packaging concepts.

"Our Design Life-Cycle Management solution addresses every part of the package design development process for CPCs," says Esko-Graphics executive vice president and general manager Simon James. "The primary component of Design Life-Cycle Management is our Scope packaging workflow offering. Scope comprises a set of modular software tools, among which is ArtiosCAD, the most powerful structural package design application available today."

Complete 3-D Integration
ArtiosCAD offers complete 3-D integration, which enables prototypes of designs and presentations to be made in minutes without having to generate samples, thus shortening design review cycles. Users can even create 3D models that demonstrate how the packaging is folded or assembled. A wide variety of industry-standard 3D formats can be imported, including IGES, STEP, CATIA, Pro/Engineer, and VRML.

"ArtiosCAD's 3D capabilities give designers, brand owners, and all other stakeholders in the package design process the ability to quickly assess a particular package design treatment to speed the design process," adds James.

Seamless Consistency Speeds the Process
ArtiosCAD also works seamlessly with Adobe Illustrator, the industry staple software application for package design. Data can be preserved and shared between these two programs, enabling creative and structural designers to maintain a smooth and efficient workflow between one another.

In the past, structural and creative designers did not have such consistency when sharing files with each other. As a result, modifications often would be made to a layout that should not have been made, which slowed the workflow altogether. "This seamless integration alone dramatically speeds the design process," James asserts.

The integration between ArtiosCAD and Illustrator also helps structural designers create CAD files that follow graphic outlines - a particularly important element for designers of displays and folding cartons, where the final package die cut must often follow specific graphic features.

Two Illustrator plug-ins - which are available free of charge at www.esko-graphics.com - enhance productivity and communication between structural and graphic designers. The first plug-in imports native ArtiosCAD files into Illustrator, maintains ArtiosCAD layers and information, and provides dedicated tools to preserve CAD data within Illustrator. Conversely, designers using Illustrator can utilize the second plug-in to export graphic information directly into ArtiosCAD.

Other Key Features of ArtiosCAD Include
- tool alignment and snapping - provides extensive graphical feedback to users, making ArtiosCAD easy to learn and use.

- robust drafting tools - help designers gain more productivity via automation. For example, ArtiosCAD's Automatic Dimensioning tool can be used to automatically add dimensions either to an entire drawing or just a selected area.

- Smart Standards - allow users to create designs and maintain design consistency in a matter of seconds via a library of standard templates. Here, a single Smart Standard can be automatically resized to create thousands of basic parametric designs.

- efficient sheet layouts - enable users to examine the estimated production cost at each machine within a packaging plant. ArtiosCAD's Intelligent Layout function automatically suggests optimum layouts with lowest cost.

- layout and tooling design features - can be used to create plate layouts and die tooling that later will be used in the manufacturing process.

- integrated database and reporting - enhance communication within a CPC and with its external suppliers. Database Reports can be saved in XML, HTML, and Excel formats.

RUMI circular socks machines programming
Two graphic programs are actually employed for programming the new circular knitting machines: RUMIDRAW graphic program, for the pattern's creation WACPAINT graphic program, for the administration of chain and pattern's program, between the computer and the machine.
RUMIDRAW graphical program description
The program RUMIDRAW is being used by RUMI S.p.a. as the principal graphic program for the creation of patterns on the knitting machines in production. The program has been developed trying to make the best of the platform Windows 32 bit.
The pattern's realization takes place in a very intuitive way, by the use of specific functions studied in way to guide the user during the creation of sock's patterns. The instruments, even though very powerful, turn out to be very familiar also for those who have little experience with the normal graphic programs. Working at a high resolution, it is possible to obtain high quality images thanks to the very useful zoom function which is complete of a grid so to obtain the best, also in the visualization of small details with few stitches.
RUMIDRAW is a multidocument program so it is possible to work with more than one design at the same time.
Besides the program offers specific instruments to interact in a very simple and fast way with any type of scanner and printer, among all of these instruments the reduction function is very useful to modify straight away the colours of an image previously scanned. The system is modular, that is to say, with the version Extended (Optional), it is possible to obtain simulations and reproductions of the socks with a stitch effect, the colour's variation for the preparation of samples directly from the computer, the registration of the items and many other very interesting functions continuously in evolution.
WACPAINT graphical program description
WACPAINT is the development tool employed to program the RUMI knitting machine equipped with WAC electronics. The programming of these machine is graphical, that's to say that the controls and the selections' representation is assured by a pattern rather than a sequence of controls normally expressed in textual format. The approach to this programming offers many advantages, do the possibility of seeing what the machine performs range after range, needle by needle and it also permits to control the machine's situation in any moment.

WACPAINT introduces the differentiation between chain program and pattern, dividing them in two separate entities and it also introduces a sequence of controls linked to the program's execution. WACPAINT is not a pattern program, this means that ít incorporates a sequence of functions which feature the conversion of pattern from standard to WAC original format, giving the possibility of visual combination between the colours and the possible different pattern.
Particularly, the program can:

- create and edit programs
- convert pattern from Window BMP and Pluto PIC into WAC format
- create association between colours and feeder
