ArtiosCAD formats

ArtiosCAD uses .ARD as its main native format. A .ARD typically represents one box. It contains a flat representation of the sheet with its cutlines, crease lines and many other production representations. Other native formats:

  • .A3D: pre-defined 3D representations of packaging, potentially containing assemblies and other combinations of boxes and their contents in 3D
  • .MFG: represents manufacturing information. ARD designs are first stepped/repeated for economical production. This creates a basic representation of the cutting master(s). This is then further designed to contain helping aids for production such as:
    • Bridges and nicks
    • Rubber
    • Blanking
