Combine knowledge from computer graphics, vision, and imaging to define new methods for providing accurate visual previews of 2.5D and 3D printed material appearance.

  • Identify major physical and perceptual attributes that correlate to the visual appearance of printed surfaces.
  • Address specifically surface roughness and the appearance of gloss, in conjunction with colour.
  • Develop enabling technologies and methodologies for visualization of material appearance.
  • Evaluate quality of developed technologies and methodologies using human observers and appropriate statistical methods.
