Challenges for 3D High-Fidelity Soft Proofing
Abstract:This paper contends that current soft-proofing systems for print products should more correctly be described as soft-preview systems. They currently do not visualize the appearance and mechanical properties of a final printed and finished product with sufficient accuracy to be part of a formal enforceable contract between manufacturer and buyer. This paper discusses a systematic approach to assemble a measurement-based system which measures, models, renders and evaluates visual appearance attributes like gloss and elaborates on existing approaches and challenges that must be addressed in order to implement a high-fidelity real-world soft proofing service for a scalable web-to-print application.

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.
