iC3D iC3D

iC3D is the world’s first 3D real-time packaging simulation and design application to combine multiple packaging disciplines in one product. Other software applications frustratingly separate design applications into cartons, labels, flexibles, bottles, shrink or store visualisation. iC3D encompasses these and more, allowing all these elements to be seamlessly combined in the same scene.

Product information

In addition to the unique, easy 3D model creation, lighting, shadows, special effects, materials and in-store visualization, users need a better way to accurately and securely share their 3D packaging design content to clients and stakeholders. iC3D opsis delivers just that and allows iC3D users to securely upload their 3D digital packaging designs to the cloud whilst maintaining all of iC3D special effects, including metallics, environments, shadows, lighting, transparency, backgrounds, holographic & lenticular.

What truly sets opsis apart is the unique viewing capabilities which end-users will experience when looking and interacting with 3D packaging content using any web browser on any platform, any O/S and any graphics card, including smartphones tablets and computers.

How does iC3D opsis work?

Each iC3D opsis account allows up to 100 iC3D models to be uploaded and stored for free on the opsis cloud with 100% guaranteed network uptime on secure hi-bandwidth servers.

A unique url is generated on each upload which can be emailed to clients for them to interactively view, zoom, rotate and spin 3D content on any web browser.

This url can also be embedded into web sites to provide stunning interactive 3D content with accurate colours, lighting and effects which allow brands to showcase their products in the best way.

Free account

Simply create a free account and upload your 3D packaging designs directly from within the iC3D application.

Webinar - Distributed and remote rendering in Creative Edge's iC3D

With the distributed and remote rendering feature, you can use leftover processing capability from other computers on your network to help render the images faster.

Otherwise, even when using a strong computer with a good GPU to render images using the Ray Tracer in iC3D, it still may take longer than you'd like.

On September 12, Tom Peire, CEO of Four Pees, held an English webinar to show you what's new in the latest version of iC3D.

Product video - iC3D Suite 4.0 show reel

Creative Edge Software presented iC3D Suite v4 at drupa 2016. As photorealism was previously the missing piece of the puzzle, five new features have been developed specifically to address this concern:

  1.  Ray Tracing accurately simulates effects of light on virtual objects for photorealistic, ultra-high-resolution, accurate photo studio effects.
  2.  3D Model Interiors enables realistic liquid filling, at any angle.
  3.  Light Map Editor re-creates studio lighting, editable highlights and shadows.
  4.  Dynamic Backgrounds real-time merging of 2D photo images with 3D designs.
  5.  Perspective Control matches 3D model perspective to 2D photo backgrounds.
