M3

What is m3 & m3 Art software?

They are specialized software for boxes and POP/POS Display. Supportive materials include folding carton, corrugated board and rigid board.
The m3 is a comprehensive library of parametric components and designs, specifically designed for the Valiani cutting machines. It is structured to deliver the capability to edit packaging, display cases and other cardboard based 3D objects, resize & Cut.


Features:

Parametric libraries for packaging in millimeters and inches
An integrated library index with sections for different materials
Support of the ECMA and FEFCO codes, and a lineup of additional parametric designs
Resizing and automatic structural modification by parameter editing
Dedicated driver for Valiani



The m3 Art is a combination of functionalities giving graphic designers the flexibility to work directly in Adobe Illustrator with files from the packaging and POP/POS displays parametric libraries. Native m3 files can be opened in Illustrator without conversion and can be resized.

Focusing on the visual side of the design process, the m3 Art offers intuitive 3D prototyping with realistic visualization of the material, print and finishing effects within Illustrator. This integration ensures that the powers of graphic and CAD software systems complement one another – a process that increases productivity and requires minimal effort.


Features:

Conversion-free opening of native EngView files
Resizing of designs directly in Adobe Illustrator
Immediate inspection of any change in 3D
Artwork replications and finishing effects
Front and rear artwork placement variants
Generation of 3D PDF


What do I find in the Library?

The m3 library of resizable designs contains more than 500 ready-to-use standards of corrugated board, folding carton or inverted corrugated board (ICB) packages. The Library of resizable designs contains designs of corrugated containers and folding carton boxes that conform to the FEFCO and ECMA standards, as well as to own standards.

The m3 Art Library contains more than 1700 ready-to-use projects. Parametric designs for folding carton and corrugated cardboard, including the full ECMA and FEFCO codes, standards appropriate for PVC and corrugated plastics are also available and a collection of parametric POP/POS displays and complex multipart structures – furniture, walls, booths, kids’ corners – for corrugated and rigid board.

The values of the parameters - for example, box height, side length, material thickness - can be altered so that new packaging can be created. The design is then automatically calculated and the relations between the various parts of the design are kept by the packaging software.

How is it integrated with Valiani cutting machines?

Both m3 bundles are fully integrated with Valiani V-Studio, allowing users to edit any designs, customize them and finally export to the V-Studio with cutting commands intact. From version 5, there is ‘instant cut’ with a dedicated Valiani button.

OPTICROP

OptiCrop is the easy to use software, conceived by Valiani, to perform Contour Cut on pre-printed image. The software used in combination with ImageCut provides
you with diagram to preview your contour cuts. This preview will even assist you in searching registration marks and export the artwork into your machine correctly.

What is Opticrop?

The machine mounted camera can read registration marks and detect the position of cuts on the machine’s table. OptiCrop has an advanced feature to allow you the redrawing of the artwork according to the print skew. This feature always ensures the maximum precision when performing the contour cuts.

Hardware and Software

Contour Cutting involves placing an outline around an object and makes the machine cut it.

What is the Contour Cutting?

OptiCrop works with .SVG files, and is totally compatible with Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw.


Which file does it take?

Since OptiCrop works with vector files, it is possible to set-up plotting process using different pen colors on you art work.

Using a black line the software will import the object as a cut.

This feature also recognizes different colors and allows the user to set-up on V-Studio halftones color.

Color Recognition

Plug-in to add registration marks are available for both, Corel Draw and Adobe Illustrator.

Are registration marks plug-ins available?

Plug-in to add registration marks are available for both, Corel Draw and Adobe Illustrator.

How does it work?

OptiCrop once positioned the camera on the first registration marks, automatically detect the 2nd, 3rd and 4th marks redrawing the artwork according to the position on the cutting table.

3 registration marks correct affine transformation; 4 non-affine transformation. « Retry mode » allows you to repeat registration mark acquiring when not recognized preventing wasting time.

What makes everyday things easy to do…


SVG compatibility (Adobe Ill. & Corel Draw)

Pen colors identification

Square and Round registration marks compatibility

Customizable registration marks sizes

High tolerance to variation in brightness

No limitation in registration marks positioning (Inside

or outside artwork perimeter)

Straightening cutting process available up to +/- 44 °

Repositioning camera capability in case of

recognition failure

Capability to manage object rotated 90°
