Zünd ZDC 3.1 represents a major overhaul of Zünd’s proven Illustrator-Plug-In with visual and technological improvements that make the program even more comprehensive and easy to use. With this relaunch, the new ZDC user interface is receiving a fresh, new design featuring bold new icons that make working with the program more efficient than ever and help keep the toolbar nice and tidy. This makes navigating the program much easier and facilitates finding functions the user may be using only sporadically.
ZDC lets the user create packaging and displays with just a few clicks. The program is built around a comprehensive library of parametric design templates that can be changed and scaled as needed. Until this latest release, templates were available for folding carton and corrugated, PVC, PP, and foam board. Version 3.1 now also offers templates for MDF. Another addition is the ability to import an unlimited number of objects in .obj format, inserting them in a newly created design and viewing it in 3D preview.
Zünd has also simplified automatic file retrieval. To make the process as easy as possible, QR-codes can now be created in a separate layer. All the user has to do is enter the name of the job and the desired position, and ZDC will automatically generate the corresponding QR-code. In addition, the user now has the option to save designs as favorites, which provides a shortcut to commonly used designs and eliminates the potential for spending valuable time locating designs that have been used before.
