Empowering Creativity


Zünd Design Center

Zünd Design Center is an Adobe® Illustrator® plug-in for creating single- and multi-part packaging and three-dimensional POP/POS displays from folding carton, corrugated cardboard, foam board, sandwich panel, PP, PVC, and MDF.


The basis for ZDC is an extensive library of parametric designs. From this collection, you can choose a template and enter your own dimensions as needed. Complete your design with logos, patterns, text and other design elements.

Using 3D preview, you can verify your design any time. 3D PDF files exported from ZDC are ideal for presentations or proposals. In addition, you can export designs as 3D objects, videos, or static images.

For further processing, generate a PDF from the finished design in which paths for cutting, creasing, and other processing methods irrelevant for printing are automatically hidden. On the other hand, export .zcc files directly into Zünd Cut Center with production-related data such as material type and thickness.

ZDC comprehensive library

Comprehensive Library

In the ZDC library, hundreds of templates are available and ready for use as designs in folding carton, corrugated cardboard, foam board, sandwich panel, PP, PVC, and MDF. Four different views are available to facilitate choosing the right design.
All designs in the ZDC library are parametric and can be changed as needed. All you have to do is enter the most relevant measurements, and all others will be calculated and adjusted according to the specified material thickness.

3D Visualisation

3D Visualization

Adobe® Illustrator® lets you work in a professional software environment with a myriad of functions and design options. In the 3D ZDC preview, you can check your designs any time and see how changes affect the folded end product. No matter whether you wish to produce an object in transparent PP or corrugated cardboard, because of the material-based presets, 3D visualization will show your designs in the proper material.
