Material Scanning – Camira Fabrics

Posted by Diane, 3 weeks ago

Camira Fabrics were receiving an increased number of enquiries for seamless textured images for use within 3D rendering software. They were struggling to find a reliable and cost-effective resource to create these high-end tileable images; we were able to offer them a solution.

Process
Whilst considering pattern repeats, we scanned sections from a supplied physical material sample to convert it into a digital format. The scaled duplicate was digitally edited to remove imperfections and colour corrected to produce a high-resolution image true to its authentic tone.

Result
By carefully removing subtle shadowing and aligning distorted edges; that would otherwise distract from the overall image; we were able to create digital material samples that would seamlessly tile across the surface of any CAD object.

Summary
Camira Fabrics are now able to give their customers instant online access to digital materials that are a reliable representation of the real-world fabrics. CAD libraries for Revit, pCon, and SketchUp are also readily available.

Feedback
Our work with Camira Fabrics began in 2017 after initial contact was made via LinkedIn. We have successfully completed over 40 ranges in accordance with the goal of creating seamless textured images and CAD files.

“Our customers are thrilled with the high-resolution tileable fabric scans and modelling files we can now provide. These images were supplied promptly and in all the formats we require, going above and beyond to ensure the scans we receive are the most accurate representation of our fabrics.”

Camira Fabric Revit Families can be accessed from our ‘Downloadable Revit Families’ section of our website.

Material Scanning
Are your online surface images of the highest standard? Do they tile seamlessly across products within a CAD software? In an industry where it has become an expectation to offer 3D visualisations of a proposed space, it is just as important to ensure the surfaces; from upholstery to flooring; are represented accurately within the scene.
