Adding Textures to 3D models; Texture, Bump, and Displacement Mapping: How to Make Photo-realistic Models
In our previous tutorials, we discussed applying colour to 3D printed models. But the Stratasys J750™ and J735™ also have more advanced capabilities, including the ability to create photorealistic lifelike product models incorporating company logos, detailed text, and graphic elements. It can also produce models with surface finishes that mimic various materials, such as leather and wood. This tutorial will explain the theory behind how these effects are applied. In future tutorials we will investigate how to quickly use these tools to achieve fantastic realistic parts.
