For Scanning Appearance Characteristics
The TAC7 scanner captures and stores color, texture, gloss and other surface appearance characteristics of physical material samples.
For Creating Virtual Materials and File Formats
PANTORA, a desktop application, is the controlling hub of the TAC ecosystem. It allows users to store, manage, view and edit digitally captured materials and to exchange these materials, via a vendor neutral Appearance Exchange (AxF) file format.
For Communicating Material Appearance Data
AxF is a vendor-neutral file format that digitally stores and shares a material’s appearance properties across PLM, CAD and rendering applications.
The PANTORA Material Hub enables designers, 3D artists, material specifiers and marketers to easily create a centralized library of digital materials as well as store, manage and edit digital material files for realistic and consistent material renderings that improves product quality and accelerates time to market.
AxF™ is a standard way to digitally store and share a material’s appearance across PLM, CAD and rendering applications
In this free webinar, Dr. Marc Ellens, Senior Software Engineer, and Thomas Meeker, 3D Solutions Architect, will discuss how industry leaders are using Total Appearance Capture (TAC) to bring a new level of realism and efficiency to all steps of the design-to-production process.
