Eliminate costly and time-consuming packaging prototype development with 3D CAD software directly connected with Centric PLM. 3D capabilities within Centric PLM empower everyone, even those without 3D training or a 3D CAD license, to view, annotate, comment and share realistic protoypes for a complete 3D workflow.
2D packaging engineers can easily connect directly to PLM libraries while working in their native Adobe Illustrator environment and those with no Illustrator training can also comment, view, etc. This connection eliminates tedious data entry and admin task so the focus can stay on creativity and paying attention to detail.
Inspiration, competitive analysis, quality reviews, factory inspections and more happen beyond the confines of the office. Centric’s suite of Mobile Apps connect directly to PLM so teams can work from anywhere and at any time with no need to rekey any information once back at their desks. The time savings is huge!
