Sub-Millimeter Reproduction of Fabrics, Leathers, Metals, Paints, Woods, Textiles, etc. Helps Design and Manufacturing Companies Create Photoreal Digital Prototypes
Today, Chaos Group announces a new scanning technology that can produce an exact digital replica of a physical material with sub-mm precision. Design and manufacturing firms can instantly take advantage of this patented technology through VRscans, Chaos Group’s new full-service material scanning business.
“We’ve dedicated the last 19 years to advancing rendering technology, so designers can trust what they see on their screen. Now they can match the material sample in their hand with the one in their 3D model,” said Peter Mitev, CEO at Chaos Group.
While using digital graphics to prototype projects has been the standard for design firms and Fortune 500 companies for years, the ability to present products with 100% accuracy has not. In the past, approximations were used, forcing artists to spend countless hours getting 90% of the way there. With VRscans, companies can now send in their material samples, trusting that what comes back will be the most accurate representation of a digital material yet. Once processed, the materials are returned with a .vrscan file that arrives ready to render in V-Ray – Chaos Group’s widely-used photorealistic lighting and rendering software.
