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 Virtual Light Booth provides an unparalleled ability to accurately compare physical and digital material samples, streamlining the design approval process and accelerating time to market.
