Virtual Molding promises to dramatically improve the ability of the non-specialist to interpret and effectively utilize plastic process simulation results. This paper explores one facet of this technology - the incorporation of texture mapping of aesthetic defects. Specifically, attempts to mimic blush are discussed in detail. Tiled and procedural textures are compared, and a series of increasingly sophisticated procedural algorithms are described. The paper concludes with a discussion of application of the procedural texture techniques to other areas of virtual molding, along with planned future extensions of the techniques.
