Redesigning Packaging Design with 3D Printing
Get innovative prototypes with TriMech’s packaging design services.
TriMech can accelerate your design cycles and produce complex, full-color, high-fidelity packaging prototypes — all in one print — with our realistic PolyJet™ 3D printing service.
TriMech can 3D print your Packaging Prototypes
- Break free of traditional prototyping methods and create disruptive packaging showcases with cutting-edge PolyJet technology‘s full digital modeling process.
- Validate your final package design with realistically textured full color prototypes
- Produce mock-ups and prototypes of your packaging designs for cosmetics, beverages and consumer goods industries with graphics that are part of the print and provide the ultimate design communication tool
Packaging Design Benefits and Examples
Take a look at the type of functional models and visual prototypes that TriMech can provide you:
Innovative life like materials
VeroUltra materials use advanced color algorithms to take PolyJet full-colour printing to extraordinary levels — enabling high-quality, full-color model production.
The unique color qualities of VeroUltra can also simulate natural materials such as wood, fabrics and marble.
Sharp text and graphics
The ability to produce such high-quality colors with VeroUltra results in sharper text, labels and graphics and allows us to achieve 2D industry print standards (MTF 50% of 37.5LPI).
PolyJet VeroUltra Black and VeroUltra White materials bring unmatched quality to 3D printed text and graphics.
Producing packaging from 3MF
We can produce complex, high transparency, full-colour 3D packaging with 2D graphics and labels in one print, in an all-digital workflow.
We can easily prepare your files for a successful print with GrabCAD Print™ — a software that supports the industry-leading 3D manufacturing format 3MF.
Go from 3D design to Package Prototype in a matter of hours
Simplify your workflow
Appearance prototypes are typically expensive to create and can take many hours of manual, in-house work, which is not ideal in a competitive, fast-paced market. Streamline your design process by using TriMech’s PolyJet 3D printing service your rendering models quickly instead of spending hours manually designing prototyping-specific models or communicating your design intent with traditional external vendors.
Get professional cost-efficient models
Explore more design combinations, variations and trends and deliver more professional packaging prototypes to key decisionmakers. Test multiple designs with focus groups. Plus, reduce prototyping costs and time by switching from expensive traditional modeling methods to full-color 3D printed models.
Get high fidelity prototypes
Go beyond traditional concept writeups and sending rendering illustration pictures over email. Obtain highly-realistic, tangible prototypes and gain accurate feedback and early buy-in from customers and stakeholders before committing to costly packaging production. PolyJet 3D printing provides exceptional transparency with saturated, opaque graphics all in one print.
- Produce sharp graphics that meet 2D graphics labeling standards.
- Simulate clear, spray-painted or tinted glass as well as transparent or colored plastic with smooth colour gradients.
- Mimic natural materials such as wood and fabrics
Decrease the downtime and costs associated with packaging prototypes by using a service that enables full appearance testing earlier in the design process.
