Texture development

Creating textures for laser engraving or 3D printing requires very specific expertise. With our experience in surface evaluation and a well-established data workflow, we are able to provide a service that users often have little or no staff for.

Texture Design

  • Design based on moodboards and trend research
  • Create seamless tiles, repeats
  • Develop production data from first tests to final serial mould production
  • Improvement in the case of already existing data with error patterns such as stripes, spots

Evaluation support and analysis

  • Analyse depth, roughness and gloss measurements
  •  remove stripes, distortion, data optimization
  • Improve results before production


  • Grain copies from existing surfaces
  • Digitalization of leather, textiles, organic samples or wood.
  • Working textures out from scans
  • Adapt textures for a use in different materials or production processes
  • Scan Data evaluation

UV Mapping

  • Placement of the texture on the component surface
  • Optimize distortion
  • Renderings and Material Simulation
  • 360° animation for presentations / evaluation

A project history with TAKTILESDESIGN GmbH


    We clarify the feasibility taking into account the material and process parameters.
    The basis is customer samples or CAD data as a step format or existing results.
    We analyze data and roughness with imaging depth measurements.

  • Data creation

    • We create texture and 3D files and export data formats for the production process.
      The data process is based on common software and the latest software solutions from network partners.
      Our experience and practice help us and the customer to implement it quickly.
  • Prototype parts or tests

    • … are usually produced in later production quality. They are created by the customer himself or by our network partners.
  • iterative analysis

    • We accompany the process with 3D renderings and of the component surface.
  • Approval and production

    After approval by the customer, we create the data transfer of the final production with transfer of the data.
    The reproducibility and later possibility of changes is guaranteed by the digital basis and parametric work.
    During the process, customers benefit from advice in the field of design and tool manufacture, in particular for embossing rollers.
    On request, we can also take care of design and tool approvals or their complete management.

“We engineers in the tool shop appreciate your design expertise. You speak the same language as the product designers among our customers.”

“Perfect, as always!”

“You provide us significant support with your good eye regarding our grains and your ability to evaluate our embossing results!”

“We are excited about the outcome and hope to bring our results to a whole new level in the future!”
