Batik has attracted many people's attention because of its unique crack patterns. How to render this kind of handcraft patterns using inkjet printing technology is the present objective of this article. Through analysis of crack characteristics on handmade batik, an improved efficient algorithm of crack simulation was proposed based on distance transform. Firstly, the initial position of crack was determined by distance transform, secondly the spread direction of crack determined using gradient distance transform. Finally, the dyeing of cracks was simulated using Multiplicative Color Model to express the different features of cracks and the junction between old and new ones. Results of our experiments demonstrate that the proposed method can produce lifelike crack simulation, and the perfect image effects can be achieved by adjusting parameters.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
