“TOPAZET SURREALISM 2.5D COPIER is a revolutionary output from fusion technoloby of scanning and printing. 2.5D copier is based on concept of duplication for not only colors, but also textures together. The purpose of this machine is simulation of “realistic texture semi-3D printing” with real data of surface scanning, not a kind of ‘unique effect’ for graphics and signage. It will provide true realism of copier for both or color and surface texture of real object, like stone, wood, textile, sands, leaves, skins and etc.
Line laser on the object surface will be scanned by CMOS and depth (height) of surface information will be collected in real time to generate BW depth map. This depth map will be combined with color information to print. TOPAZ rip can use both of depth information and color information for realistic reproduction of the object in color and texture by UV LED inkjet technology in printing of multiple layers. For example, famous oil painting art can be duplicated just looking the same with original, not just colors, but also textures. Real wood surface can be duplicated onto the paper or film for interior decoration on the floor or wall. There’s huge potential of application in variety.”
