Design Studio:

Factory takes your scans to the third dimension, giving you full control over 3D, gloss and depth acquisition.


3D Scanning with Factory captures not only the color but also the surface structure of their templates.

Using the photometric stereo method, the software determines the 3D structure of the template from calibrated scans with precisely defined light and camera positions. 


Our Virtual Relighting technology enables the re-exposure of scans with the help of virtually defined lighting scenarios. 

The optimal illumination of your original can be determined very easily, and a virtually illuminated scan can be calculated, even if the original is no longer available.

Factory calculates the following information:

Surface Structure in the Form of a Height/Depth Image

For each pixel, the height above the template table is determined. This can be displayed as a gray value image or directly in the integrated 3D view.


Diffuse Color
A color image of the template in which all shades and highlights are calculated out.

Gloss parameters are determined for each pixel, which can also be displayed as a gray value image or in the integrated 3D view.


How You can use Factory Software:

Art Reproduction

Create true-to-original replicas that can hardly be distinguished from the original in both color and 3D surface texture. Such a replica makes it possible for you to experience every brushstroke of the original.


Decorative Surfaces

Thanks to the simple workflow and extremely fast processing, surfaces can now be reproduced cost-effectively, even with minimal quantities. Whether a floor, wall, or piece of furniture, there are no limits to your creativity.


3D Rendering

Use the collected data for any kind of 3D rendering. The scanner provides all necessary data for PBR (Physically-Based Rendering) applications, the unique capability for which CRUSE is known worldwide.

Difference between Factory & Hybrid


Requires 4 scans with different light directions and a left + right scan for accurate color information.

With this approach, many details are captured at low resolution. The calculation process is faster, the dynamic range is lower than hybrid, discontinuities and jumps appear smoothed.


Uses at least 4 scans with different light directions and at least two angle scans.


The process is fast and provides reliable absolute height values and a correct reproduction of edges and discontinuities. Compared to a calculation with Factory without hybrid, the dynamic range is much higher with very good detail resolution at the same time.
