Perceptual Appearance Uniformity in 3D Printing
We demonstrate the effectiveness of applying visual search to appearance perception problems by analyzing 288 appearance variations formed from the combination of 18 printed surfaces, 8 virtual transformations of those surfaces, and two illumination conditions. The virtual transformations allowed us to explore the impact of bumpiness, glossiness, and spatially-varying color on perceived uniformity. Significant effects were found to be caused by several of these dimensions. Additionally, the measured psychophysical data is a valuable contribution to the general study of the perception of spatially-varying appearances.

For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.
Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
