3D Wizard Foiling

Outside - foil only applied to the outside/print-face of the folding model - viewed from above.

Geometry - click to toggle the visibility of Cuts & Creases.

Foil Layers -  a context menu option allows you to add/delete additional foil layers, refresh the preview and display (and temporarily override) the properties of assigned foil settings.

Mask Settings

  • Colour - select a colour to indicate where the selected foil setting will be applied.
  • Transparency - specify a transparency percentage to apply to the foil mask. A value of 0% would show only the mask colour and leave the foiled areas visible. A value of 100% would simply show the board/artwork with no indication of foiling. A value of 50% will allow the  board/artwork and foiled areas to be seen. In the example above, the foil will be applied to the white areas.

Preview - the preview pane contains a real-time dynamic preview, with a range of controls located beneath the preview window itself. The preview pane also features a context menu offering the following tools - Display/View/Pan & Zoom/Zoom In Out/Zoom Box/Rotate View/Animate/Save Image & Print.

Click Next to continue with the Wizard or Back to return to the previous page. Click Cancel to cancel the Wizard.
