Introduction to Packaging Visualization in Blender

A guide to use Blender as a tool for packaging designers

Course Description

This Course introduces you to blender, a great open source 3D content creation software that is predominantly used in industries like movies, animation and games. In this course, we explore the possibility to use Blender as a tool for packaging design. 

Choosing 3D model over mockups

  • 3D models are extremely customisable and versatile

  • Allows simulation of surface details like embossing, UV, foiling, transparency and paper texture.

  • Ability to view the design from multiple angles.

  • Better accuracy of texture mapping on curved surfaces.

  • Offers more flexibility and control.

  • Unlocks animation capabilities.

What is 3D Visualization for packaging all about?

The end goal of a packaging visualisation is to show your 2D packaging design concepts on a 3D model as if it was made for real. By doing 3D visualisations, we gain a deeper understanding of our design, hence one can quickly prototype ideas using 3D software and make confident and quick design decisions which will reduce the production time. A 3D visualisation can greatly benefit a designer as one can communicate ideas with 3D renders to potential people such as clients or investors and get feedback.

To sum up, 3D visualisation helps to

  • Reduce production time

  • Better understanding of a design

  • Make better design decisions

  • Communicate design ideas to potential people

  • Make Animations

What does a 3D software offer for Packaging Designers?

A 3D content creation offers creative tools for various industries for a vast amount of different needs. This makes a 3D software seem daunting and complicated to learn. But the tools needed for a packaging designer is much simpler and easy to learn. We will make use of certain tools in the following domains : Modelling, UV unwrapping, Texturing and Shading then finally Rendering.

Why Blender as a tool for Packaging Designers?

  • It has got powerful tools required for packaging design.

  • Cross platform nature runs the same on windows, Mac OS and Linux.

  • Clever development makes it extremely light weight software that can run even in lower computer configurations.

  • Continuous development adds new features.

  • Growing and great community support with new tutorials added everyday.

  • Blender is open source and free software (please consider donating) and is free to use for learning as well as commercial purposes.
