Bruce Hardwoods® Cleans up with Strata Foto 3D
Packaging Corporation of America was approached by long time client Armstrong World Industries to help them launch a new product. Armstrong had a prototype for their new Bruce Hardwood spray-on cleaner product but they needed a design for a shipping box that doubled as a shelf display and as a mini pallet display.

In this case study you see how Brad Bible tackled the design workflow with a combination of Strata Foto 3D, Strata 3D CX and Adobe Photoshop to deliver results that left the client completely satisfied.
Strata Stimulus Plan: $30 Down and Easy Payments
We know times are tough. Money is tight. You need to offer compelling reasons for clients to spend money with you. But it takes money to buy new technology. At least it used to.

We're proud to announce the Strata Stimulus Plan. Buy the Strata CX Suite or any member product (Strata 3D CX, Strata Foto 3D and Strata Live 3D) for only $30 down and monthly payments as low as $69.95.

Paint in 3D: Color, Bump, Reflectivity, Transparency.
If you have Photoshop CS4 Extended - or you're even thinking of upgrading - you have to get Strata 3D CX 5.6. This very cool upgrade gives you the power to link back and forth with Photoshop to interactively paint on 3D objects and then send those textures back to your Strata project.

The painting power even includes the ability to paint into transparency, reflection and bump channels.

If you own any version of Strata 3D - even old licenses of StudioPro or Vision - check out this link for the killer upgrade price to get this power into your hands today.
Featured Resource - Chronograph by Emanuel Brito
Emanuel Brito, along with a few other Strata users, has consistently managed to get his name into this bulletin by providing quality models for Strata users. This generosity benefits all Strata users, and we wish Emanuel all the best. If you enjoy Emanuel's models, take some time and visit his gallery on StrataCafe to see what he's been up to.
