Streamline your product design process, reduce approval cycles, and accelerate your speed to market with solutions that offer a new level of accuracy in capturing, communicating, and visualizing physical materials. X-Rite's Total Appearance Capture (TAC) Ecosystem takes 3D virtualization to a new level. Capture reality in a physically precise way and ensure consistency in your presentation of digital materials -- from paints to fabrics to wood grains -- across your design, marketing, and point-of-sales tools.

For Scanning Appearance Characteristics

The TAC7 scanner captures and stores color, texture, gloss and other surface appearance characteristics of physical material samples.

PANTORA™ Material Hub

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.

Appearance Exchange Format (AxF™)

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.

Virtual Material Service

Material Scanning Service

Let X-Rite experts handle the physical material scanning for you. Transform your samples into highly accurate digital material data files for use in 3D 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.
