Digitally-controlled surface manipulation of materials
Texxus creates 3D surface forms and textures for architectural, industrial, and consumer products. Using advanced modeling and production software, Texxus creates surfaces at any scale and produces them in suitable materials using computer-controlled manufacturing technology. Previously unachievable organic free-form shapes of almost any size can now be produced to engineering tolerances by one of the most advanced CAD/CAM design and manufacturing facilities in Europe.
The Texxus process regards both the 3D surface geometry as well as an optional superimposed 3D texture relief and interfaces with a number of output manufacturing technologies, which have joint ventures in stonework and pattern-making for foundry work, such as aero-aluminum, bronze, and cast iron. In this way, Texxus is able to enhance the appearance, performance, and value of surfaces.
