Dimensional design in Illustrator has never been easier - with FoldUP! 3D, let your imagination fly and watch your designs leap off the page. Using FoldUP! 3D, you can rapidly test a variety of designs digitally, eliminating the time-consuming step of creating a physical prototype.

If you're a designer that uses Illustrator, we think you will find this plug-in to be perfect for modeling your packaging projects, dimensional mailers, or any other folding paper design.

Since the folded settings can be saved, quickly build a library of different shapes for various design projects.

Key to any design project is the question: how does it look? In traditional dimensional or folded paper projects, finding that out means building a prototype of your design, either using a sample cutter or, worst case scenario, scissors and glue. With FoldUP! 3D, answer the question easily in Illustrator with a 3D mockup.

Key features:

  • Easily change background colors or lighting properties.
  • View your 3D mockup from any angle; freely export to a wide range of popular graphics formats.
  • Watch your package fold in stages; edit at any step of the process.
  • Preview different media types: clear packaging, white paper, regular printing, and more.

Because FoldUP! 3D is an Illustrator plug-in, there's no need to waste time learning difficult 3D software. Draw in Illustrator's familiar two dimensions, guided by templates, and let FoldUP! 3D take care of the rest.

Since you can rapidly preview in three dimensions, feel free to experiment with new designs and patterns - don't run an expensive proof until you're satisfied with how the folded shape looks.

  • Import templates from popular CAD programs, or draw your own in Illustrator.
  • Experiment with new folded designs, testing quickly and easily in three dimensions.
  • Dynamically update your designs by changing the placed graphics or die lines and refreshing the 3D mockup to preview.
  • Eliminate painstaking Exacto knife work.
