Banas’ 3D materials are now available for download in the Texture Library, an online resource for architects to discover digital materials from real-world manufacturers for their projects.

Key Benefits of Incorporating 3D Materials into Design Workflows

  • High-Quality Digital Representation: Each texture is crafted to reflect the true appearance, texture, and color of Banas' products, ensuring that the digital samples are virtually indistinguishable from their physical counterparts. This ensures that the finished architectural project meets expectations.

  • User-Friendly: The digital textures are easily downloadable and compatible with commonly used 3D modeling software, making the integration process seamless and hassle-free.

  • Time and Cost-Efficient: By minimizing the need for physical samples, architects and builders can save valuable time and resources, reducing project costs in the process.

  • Sustainable: The use of digital textures reduces the consumption of natural resources, making it an environmentally friendly option for incorporating porcelain into designs.

  • Improved Decision Making: By offering a true-to-life visual representation, textures help stakeholders make informed decisions about material selections early in the design process.
