Work Summary

Enrolled at Télécom ParisTech (Paris) in collaboration with Océ-CANON, Teun Baar worked on the optimisation of the print quality, using 2.5D and 3D printing technologies, where ink droplets are pilled up to control the physical surface texture. Teun showed how using this technology, the reflection characteristics beyond colour, such as the glossiness and angular dependent colour appearance can be altered as well. The research lead to new approaches to manage the print surface appearance for several viewing directions and illumination conditions, and to a better understanding of the perceptual appearance of such surfaces.
