Technicon Design & Virtual Colour & Trim Development

Technicon Design has long been known for its digital modelling capabilities in the automotive industry, but did you know that they do a lot of virtual prototyping including Colour & Trim proposals?

Their digital surfaces and materials look so realistic that it makes it much easier, quicker and much more cost-effective for customers to make their selection of the right material in this way. You can quickly “dress” your product in different digital materials for comparison and the images are amazing.

Have a look at their website or at the recent article in Form Magazine (Form Special Issue “The Magic of Materials”, form 226, May/June 2009).
