Alex Ju, Forecast3D

Have you been wondering how to apply textures to your models for additive manufacturing, or have you been wrangling with bump maps wondering if there is a better way? 

In this video, you will learn how to use nTop Platform to create appealing, non-repeating textures on your products. Alex Ju will cover how to create and customize leather-type textures, one of her most popular texturing requests. 

She will also cover how to flow generative molecular-type patterns along part surfaces in the pursuit of newer, uniquely-3D-printable aesthetics. Applications for the wide range of possible visual and functional effects will also be discussed. 

Watch this video and learn more about: 

  • Generating leather textures in nTop Platform creates a more organic, realistic finish by removing the need for textures to tile and repeat
  • Molecular-type textures can be easily created and customized in nTop to bring uniqueness and targeted functionality to any type of part
  • Developing textures in nTop Platform which increases customizability and flexibility of design (while avoiding working with millions of triangles!)
