Do I need an xTex™ scanner to work with xTex™ software?
There are many ways to work with xTex™. If you need physically based textures of high quality, using our scanner along with our software is probably the best solution for you.
That said, it is also possible to use our software with images from other devices, such as flatbed scanners or digital cameras. While you will not receive physically correct depth or reflectance information with this method, you can still create and apply seamless materials very efficiently.
Is it difficult to set up and maintain an xTex™ scanner?
Scanner setup is very simple and only takes a few minutes with the xTex™ A4. Our larger xTex™ A2 device ships disassembled due to its size and must be assembled on-site, but our expert technicians guide you through the process via live video conference for a smooth installation.
Once the systems are set up, you may need to clean out dust and lint from the scanner drawer occasionally, but other than that, they are practically maintenance free and do not have any consumable parts that need to be replaced on a regular basis.

Can I scan materials from assembled products like shoes or garments?
xTex™ can capture most materials as long as the surface to be captured can be placed flat in the scanner drawer.
This means you may need to disassemble objects such as shoes to flatten the target area or use the larger xTex™ A2 for capturing from garments that don’t fit in the xTex™ A4 drawer.
What are the minimum and maximum material dimensions xTex™ can capture?
What are the operating conditions for the xTex™ scanner?
