Ajmal Perfumes using Autodesk 3D design workflow
Autodesk Digital Prototyping allows perfume company to create up to 200 new product packages per year
Ajmal Perfumes is using Autodesk Digital Prototyping to enhance the design process for its product packaging.
The perfume company, which is based in Dubai, is using Autodesk Inventor and Autodesk 3ds Max Design software products to create a 3D design workflow, which allows the company to design new bottles, atomisers and packaging for perfume in much faster time than was previously possible. The company is now able to produce around 200 new designs every year.
The 3D design workflow has also increased Ajmal's manufacturing capacity, and enabled more complex product design.
Abdulla Ajmal, General Manager, Ajmal Perfumes said: "The old software presented several problems: it was very difficult to understand and it was extremely time consuming and process intensive. In addition, the output was two dimensional.
"We needed a platform that would allow for fast and easy modelling. The software had to be compliant with industry standards and provide support for other MCAD files. Cost was also taken into consideration. Once we decided on the Autodesk software, it took us six months to plan, train and rollout. Autodesk Authorized Reseller ImageGrafix made sure that we did not face any problems during the implementation."
"Autodesk solutions have provided us with substantial time savings over our previous implementations. The new arrangement is 50% faster and allows us to move on to new projects a lot quicker. Most importantly, we are now able to visualize designs in 3D, which allows us to eliminate any flaws that appear and deliver a design that is more or less in its final production form. Both Inventor and 3ds Max Design software have been extremely beneficial for us. Autodesk technology lets us visualize a design before we actually make it. This allows us to make changes, without having to invest anything more than time. I think that is invaluable.
"We plan to continue using Autodesk software," Abdulla explains. "In fact, we hope that the future sees a greater integration of design software and production facilities. We believe that general improvements in software and the introduction of additional tools will help make the creation process even easier."
