AlphaCorr Introduces Folding Genius™ AI Version 2
for Mac & Windows

November 25, 2014, Austin, TX. AlphaCorr announced today the second release of Folding Genius for Adobe Illustrator. Folding Genius is intended for AI users who need folded 3D visualization of their existing dieline design files for corrugated packaging and point-of-purchase displays.

Folding Genius supports 3D visualization of dielines created in:

  • AlphaCorr Rules, SteelRules or Dieline Genius Online
  • Esko Artios
  • Arden Impact
  • Adobe Illustrator

Supporting Adobe Illustrator versions CS6, CC and CC2014 on both Mac and Windows, the Folding Genius plug-in works from within Illustrator to animate and render folded cartons, boxes and displays with their graphics, then exports to 3D PDF.
