Traditional 3D printing processes unavoidably produce stair-step artifacts due to the nature of layer-by-layer printing. Fraunhofer IGD’s innovative solution for poly jet printers introduces a new approach that significantly reduces these visual distortions. By modulating the surface of the printed object with a high-frequency signal, such as blue noise, quantization errors are distributed to high frequencies. As a result, these artifacts become virtually imperceptible in the final print, offering a noticeably smoother and more uniform surface. With the application of this new process, the precision and quality of printed figures and objects used in these industries reach new heights. The elimination of stair-step artifacts and enhanced geometric and color precision results in highly realistic prints that captivate audiences and elevate the overall visual experience entertainment industry, encompassing animated movies, video games, and board games, which stands to benefit immensely
The manufacturers and creators can achieve superior print quality without the additional time investment, making it an efficient and practical solution for various applications.
