ANSYS Optical Measurement Device (OMD) solutions capture material properties so you can easily manage material samples virtually, enabling multiple color and trim options, variations and associations ... in real time.
Colors and materials play a significant role in the branding of a product. When it comes to industrial implementation, it is vital to choose the proper manufacturing process and an optimal color match to produce a high-quality product and raise brand perception. The creation of innovative designs with different materials, surface effects and pigments require mixing materials and colors to create unique customized solutions.
Current methods that rely on creating mood boards and preparing material samples are outdated because they provide only limited options for the appearance of the end-product.
OMD solutions enhance your color and trim processes and give your clients a realistic, detailed view of the final product. Use OMD to share virtual versions of your design concepts with your partners and customers instead of manually delivering real samples to them. OMD lets you directly measure the properties of a wide array of materials and effortlessly create visual and haptic surfaces so your customers can experience the true look and feel of a product before it is physically manufactured.
Scan Materials and Light Sources and Visualize Your Prototype Using Your Software
The portable and lightweight Optical Measurement Device lets you scan materials and measure their properties quickly and easily. You can scan existing objects and surfaces such as:
- Painted surfaces
- Car, train and aircraft cockpits
- Passenger cabins
Capture the Real Appearance of High-End Materials in a Digital Environment
With the Laboratory Optical Measurement Device, you can measure the physical appearance of your materials in a digital format for a realistic experience of your materials in the virtual world.
The Laboratory Optical Measurement Device measures and stores the appearance characteristics of real materials, even things like skin, hair, liquids and translucent materials. With a 108 dynamic range, the device precisely captures the unique appearance variations of materials under various illumination scenarios, providing you with an outstanding level of realism in 3D rendering software. You can also share your digital samples with stakeholders across the product design process. The accuracy of the Laboratory Optical Measurement Device makes it a valuable tool for quality control in production lines and laboratories.
