Bringing Surface Material Details into the 3D Creator Ecosystem with Project Captis and Josh St. John
Rarely in 3D design and anything 3D printing-related do color pattern and texture get a lot of focus and attention, even when they are the first things buyers notice in a product. On a mission in this episode to shed light on these overlooked 3D printing areas, Tom Hazzard and Tracy Hazzard interview Josh St. John, a passionate, creative technologist and the Head of Creators of Z by HP with a background in design and digital manufacturing. Beyond form and function, Josh brings surface material details into the 3D creator ecosystem, particularly through Project Captis—a prototype device that uses a type of 3D imaging to capture any material and render it digitally. He tells us how it uses 3D scanning with the process called photometry and where it is headed in the future. Now, achieving the type of material you want for your 3D printed design has become much easier. Tune into this show to learn more about material visualization in 3D design and why the digitization of materials makes a difference to the entire 3D creator ecosystem.
