Packaging Library

Packaging Library

The Packaging Library contains Example Packaging Materials. These materials are representative of common packaging materials and forms in apparel, home textiles, and footwear. The impact of a packaging selection includes all of the impacts of all of the materials, inclusive of the defect rate and net use efficiency. More can be read about this in the Creating Customized Trims/Components and Packaging section.

Since packaging materials vary in size, impacts will be different based on materials selected and the weights of the parts. The following example packaging materials are available:
