Factor Analysis of Synesthetic Perceptual Dimensions Using Aluminum Alloy Material Textures Surface in Industrial Products
In the context of the rapid development of industrial design, selection and combination of materials have become a significant topic of design research. Material texture can be perceived by the sense of vision and touch, but previous academic studies have only focused on single channel perception of materials. Here, we explore the correlation between the factors of material synesthetic perception dimensions and the evaluation dimension of aluminum alloy material surface. Analysis reveals four major dimensions: “Color,” “Glory,” “Roughness,” and “Regularity.” These dimensions include three factors that previous studies have regarded as fundamental in different studies, as well as one new factors: “Regularity”. This new factor put forward new ideas from the perspective of visual-tactile perception. Additionally, we indicate that when the factors “color” and “Glory” effect separately, its significance on material perception is higher than their simultaneous effect.
