3M Pattern Software Reaches Milestone
Oct. 18, 2019—The 3M Automotive Films Team continues to invest in pattern development and quality, pattern software, 3-D scanning technology, and is now adding window tint patterns to the database.
3M’s global pattern design team has added over 500 new paint protection film patterns in the last 18 months, including over 119 full-vehicle patterns.
Along with this production, the design team is focused on capturing quality-fit patterns and have refined hundreds of patterns in the database. 3M Automotive Films will continue to support improvements to the 12,000 plus paint protection film kits already available in the system.
In the software, 3M built a review process to engage with installers after they cut and install a pattern. The next phase of 3M PSC development is the integration of Automotive Window Film patterns.
“We have added over 1,200 Automotive Window Film patterns that go back over ten model years,” said Jake Culver, pattern & solution manager with 3M Automotive Films.
