Factory

The decor industry is increasingly in need of high-quality 3D elevation information from wood, stone, textiles and wallpaper surfaces. With Factory you can cope with these growing demands and supply your customers with accurate height information and color data. Factory is a program for 3D calculation that is seamlessly integrated into the CRUSE Design Studio.

User interface with all tools

For the calculation of 3D information and the editing of lighting and color effects, you have access to intuitive and user-friendly tools via a user interface.

CRUSE Factory works on the basis of Photometric Stereo and has been programmed by our in-house software developers to provide you with an easy-to-use, fast tool for acquiring accurate height information from the surfaces of a variety of templates.

The clear user interface of Factory, in combination with the innovative design and workflow management of the design studio not only enables them to output accurate height information of their originals in grayscale (also as layers) with the corresponding custom-fit color data, but also the output of data with sheen, shadows and diffuse colors.

How it works

Use the Workflow Manager and Scan Software to create the scans you need using the two light deflectors [needed]. When scanning is completed, the scans are automatically aligned and loaded into Factory for calculation. 

Tab Sources

Under the tab Sources you can adjust the settings for the Flatness, the Resulution and the Depth Histogram to your requirements before starting the calculation.

It is also possible to exchange the depth source, color source or the gloss source or to re-import it after processing.

Tab Shading

Under the tab Sources you can adjust the settings for the Flatness, the Resulution and the Depth Histogram to your requirements before starting the calculation.

It is also possible to exchange the depth source, color source or the gloss source or to re-import it after processing.

Tab Shading

Change color view

By double-clicking on the sidebar you can quickly change the layer from color mode to grayscale mode to be able to judge the distribution of grayscale values.

Factory Export

We offer you a wide variety of high quality export options for your data

Modify and export:
Shaded  / Gloss / Diffuse Color

Combine different settings and achieve
fascinating results. There are various settings options
available via the Shading tab:

Light position / Elevation / Light Angle Color /Shading Color / Diffuse Color / no Color / Gloss: Intensity / Material Roughness

In addition, they can use Depth Scaling to change the depth effect of their template.

New Design based on  “Shaded/Diffuse Color mode”

New Design based on  “no Color mode”

New Design based on “Diffuse Color mode” + Gloss mode”

Factory Slices / Export

All the settings you make in your calculations will be displayed in real time.

Export height information as slices

In Factory we offer height calculations not only as a greyscale image output, but also as slices for output via 3D printers, engraving machines prepare. There are various possibilities to divide up the height information and to output each slice as a single file. All the settings you make in your calculations will be displayed in real time.

Results calculations
Thanks to the intelligent workflow and project management, the results are stored centrally in the project folder “Results”. Using the Project Manager, you can call up your calculations and results at any time and, if necessary, start a new calculation in Factory.

Manual adjustment (2D)

Manually insert individual cutting planes. Move the markers to make adjustments.

Fixed Distance (2D)

Enter a fixed value to divide the height information into slices.

Fixed Number (2D)

Enter a fixed number of slices into which the height information is to be divided.

Greyscale or Booleaan view (2D)

You can choose from different views / calculation modes

2D or 3D View/Mode

In slice export you can choose between 2D or 3D mode.

Depth scaling (3D)

In 3D mode, you can also change the depth scale in your calculations.

Change the view

Switch also in the 3D mode between the individual possibilities to obtain the best possible result of their calculations.

Export opportunities 

After the calculation, export your results to the desired output format.
