Textures, Patterns and Perforations

Adding a texture, pattern or perforation on top of a 3D model just got easier with the highly automated tools in Materialise 3-matic. By directly including the texture or pattern in the model before 3D Printing, secondary processes are avoided.

Textures can be applied for esthetic or functional reasons

Esthetic: for personalized textures, for organic or designed surface decoration, or to blur the layering effect on the surface of a part.
Functional: for grip, acoustics, reflection, aerodynamics, cushioning, filtering, reinforcement.
