Uniboard Launches Digital Design Program For TFL

Designers and architects can now view patterns, colors and textures in a high-resolution digital format with Uniboard’s new Design 360, a 3D design program for the company’s decorative composite wood panel (TFL) collection. The Design 360 TFL digital design program made its debut at the Woodworking Machinery & Supply Expo (WMS), held Nov. 2-4 in Mississauga (Toronto), Ontario.

With an image resolution up to 900 dpi, the Design 360 files have a realistic appearance and are calibrated for all types of web usage, Uniboard said. The scanned TFL files can be used with 3D design software, including 2020, SketchUp, Cabinet Vision and CAD software. Animated GIFs are also available, allowing users to see the texture as it appears on real samples.

Uniboard worked with Arcane Technologies Inc. to scan all of its panels. Colors and textures were captured separately, resulting in realism, resolution and image accuracy, Uniboard added.

“For us, it was essential that the quality of our products also reflects on the digital sphere that is becoming increasingly important in the market,” said Don Raymond, vice president of Marketing and U.S. Sales at Uniboard. “We are the first to offer such a complete solution, thus the name Design 360.”
