Images are uploaded to the Bandicoot cloud platform and automatically processed, to deliver high-quality U3M (Unified 3D Material) within 24 hours. Optitex customers can then quickly and easily import the resulting U3M materials using Optitex’s Material Converter and use digital materials in their 3d virtual product samples.Amir Lehr, CEO of Optitex, said, “With the growing appeal of sustainability, the rise of e-commerce, and resulting expansion of digitized workflows, digital materials in high visual quality and accurate physical behavior, become a necessity for the vendors.
