Special-Shaped Carton Visual CAD Research Based on Components
With the great development of commodity economy, the packaging of goods has become an extremely important factor to get the advantages in the market competition. As to paper packaging, people are taking more and more attention on the design of Special-shaped Cartons.Limited by the three-dimensional way of paper, the carton CAD/CAM systems generally use the design process of "carton shape chose from the carton library →parameters set and modified →the 3D model established following the existing way", development for new carton shapes are still depended on the folding-test by the designer's hand. Design of the Carton Planar Structure usually has a time distance with Design of the Carton 3D Model, as a results, inconvenience to Special-shaped Carton designing was caused, and designers can not express their design ideas quickly and effectively.
