Digital Image Capture

Digital Finish Capture

Appearance Exchange Format (AxF™)

Scanned information is communicated to the PANTORA™ Material Hub as Appearance Exchange Format (AxF) files. The AxF output format is vendor neutral and is easily accessed by most major Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Computer-Aided Design (CAD), and state-of-the art rendering applications, so there is no need for design departments to change their current information system infrastructure.
