- New user tools: snap to align while moving, vertical collision edge and detection, and a nudge tool for fast manipulation enable users to create their 3D designs up to fifty percent faster.
- New export options: by adding automated scripting in Adobe Illustrator with new export options, users can create high-definition pack shots in no time.
- Fast artwork application in scenes: packaging designers can now easily apply different artwork to the same structures in product line-ups and multi-product combinations.
- Hyper-realistic visuals: designers can add shadows and light coming from different angles with the click of a button.
