PACK (Package Design and Construction) Kit for MODO 701, 601, & 501

The PACK Kit accelerates the design and visualization of packages in modo. It helps package designers and CG artists circumvent some of the technical stumbling blocks involved in modeling and scene construction. At the core of PACK is a collection of over 200 presets, images and assemblies which constitute a large library of packages and package components which can be modified and assembled to both visualize existing packaging – and to create totally new package designs. With PACK you can quickly create bags, wrappers, boxes, bottles, cans, cartons, tubes and tubs, and non-destructively develop new packaging concepts. PACK is far more than a simple collection of pre-built models; it's a flexible framework for creating your own custom designs. Everything in PACK is a starting point. It's up to you where you take it.

Base Shape Presets

Twenty-Eight Base Shape Presets are included in the PACK Kit

PACK's Base Shape Presets provide an easy starting point for most any package container. By utilizing the embedded morphs (form and volume variants) in these Base Shapes you can experiment with new designs or simply adjust parameters (e.g. shoulder scale) to match artwork provided to you by a client.

Container Seal Presets

Thirty-five Container Seal Presets are included in the PACK Kit

PACK contains a library of Container Seal Presets – different 3D shapes for sealing containers. Seals are often one of the most time consuming components of a package to create. With PACK you can quickly attach a seal to a container, or visualize a container with a number of different sealing methods. Alternatively, if the correct seal you want isn't in PACK you can modify the provided samples to generate new seals, thus growing PACK further, and in a way that's specific to you.

Pre-Built Packaging Models

Eighty-two Pre-Built Packaging Models are included in the PACK Kit

Many types of package are quite generic in nature so PACK also includes 82 Pre-Built Packaging Models including bags, wrappers, boxes, bottles, cans, cartons, tubes and tubs. These models are textured and UV'd so all you need to do is apply artwork and render, but of course they can also be used as starting points for new designs of your own.

Panel Presets

Fifty-three Panel Presets are included in the PACK Kit

Modeling folded boxes is often a very tricky business. PACK attempts to simplify it by providing a system of Panel Presets that can be snapped together to create 2D box templates complete with tabs. They include embedded morphs (shape variants) for changing key aspects of them and topology that allows you to create smooth SubD boxes that are easily folded.

Texture Maps

Twenty-two Texture Maps are included in the PACK Kit

Not all aspects of a package need to be modeled with polygons so PACK also provides a range of Texture Maps that can help in the visualization process. Included are crease maps, stencil maps and bump maps, which can be easily applied to models through modo's preset browser. All presets in PACK are set-up to receive these maps easily with pre-defined UV maps.

Scene Assemblies

Eleven Scene Assemblies are included in the PACK Kit

When you've created a design you are going to want to see it rendered. To help you to get a good quality image quickly, PACK also includes eleven Scene Assemblies which are rigged so you can change lighting and other display parameters quickly.

PACK Tools

Eighteen Tools are included in the PACK Kit

To help speed up the process of using this kit, PACK also includes a collection of focused Tools which can be accessed through a pop-over form. Included in the form are regular modo tools, macros and a number of scripts written specifically for PACK. These allow you modify the shape of your container and other perform other functions such as adding thickness to a container, and adding liquid volume. A Snapshot tool lets you save your work non-destructively at key points as you iterate a design.

Video Tutorials

Three full Project Video Tutorials are included in the PACK Kit

To get you up to speed as quickly as possible, PACK also comes with nearly two hours of training videos, including three full project tutorials. These tutorials will get you up to speed on all of PACK's features and will also help you to become familiar with MODO's general modeling workflow.


MODO 801 Full Feature Set

Modeling

MODO has the fastest, most advanced polygonal and subdivision surface 3D modeler anywhere. MODO's flexible modeling tools are ideal for precision modeling of mechanical and architectural designs, and for freeform organic modeling of virtually any shape. Integrated multi-res sculpting tools work alongside traditional modeling tools to offer a superior modeling experience as well as providing unique workflows for ZBrush users.

Sculpting

In MODO, sculpting and traditional modeling are brought together in one application. When you need sculpting tools, they are always right at hand. Together, the combination of modeling and sculpting tools in a single application delivers a uniquely powerful 3D modeling experience.

Animation

Animating in MODO comes naturally as the modeling and animation tools work hand in hand. The same tools used in modeling are directly leveraged in the animation system. As you create in MODO, time is just another dimension for you to draw upon. Use MODO to create precise mechanical animations or fully articulated skinned characters.

Rendering

MODO is equipped with one of the world's great renderers for creating gorgeous images and animations - and for baking out everything from HDRI files to textures for game engines. The renderer is provided as both a final render engine and as an optimized progressive refinement system that updates nearly instantly as you model, paint or change any item property within MODO. The renderer is an over-achiever that offers that rare blend of speed and quality, and includes UNLIMITED network rendering on Mac, Windows and Linux platforms.

Effects

The MODO simulation engine includes solvers for rigid and soft body dynamics as well as an integrated rules based, procedural particle system. Preparing and refining Dynamics and Particle simulations is made easy with a Preset browser to speed up layout and setup tasks, while the underlying framework relies on nodes to create more advanced setups.
