UV-MAPPING AND PARAMETRIC TEXTURING
The grain or texture is projected onto the CAD model using what is known as “mapping” and exported into common printable / laser-compatible data. Advantage: Once the mapping has been created, the texture can be exchanged very quickly without changing the CAD data set.
The textured surface has a maximum degree of freedom in terms of depth, warpage, number and direction of the textures.
Parametic Texturing: Here we create the texture directly on the surface and achieve less distortion.
Depending on customer requirements or component geometry, we decide on the most suitable process.
