Enhanced CT Software Detects and Corrects Design Flaws in Parts Made from Injection Molding, Casting or 3D Printing

The latest version of Volume Graphics' high-end CT data analysis software suite, version 3.5, brings enhanced capabilities to manufacturers looking for better ways to inspect parts and improve designs -- however they are made.

Particularly in the automotive, aerospace and defense industries, engineers exploring novel materials and manufacturing methods are increasingly turning to CT scanning to achieve a more accurate, non-destructive evaluation of product robustness and performance. Volume Graphics is a leading developer of software technology that interprets CT data from scans of almost any material to detect, analyze and visualize minute structural deviations that might affect part quality.

Version 3.5 now provides even more powerful automated design-geometry adjustment and repair tools that can be used to correct and/or offset issues that stem from the manufacturing process itself. Moldmakers, casting shops, and additive manufacturing (AM, aka 3D printing) providers alike can employ the software to detect and visualize material and/or design defects or distortions -- and then employ sophisticated capabilities to correct their CAD designs, compare values against nominal limits and ensure that final part quality meets applicable industry standards.

Here are some of the highlights in version 3.5 of Volume Graphics' CT data analysis software suite (which includes VGSTUDIO MAX, VGSTUDIO, VGMETROLOGY, VGinLINE, and myVGL):

Capability Enhancements Support Engineering Across Many Industries

Other enhancements in version 3.5 strengthen existing functionalities that support science, R&D, medical device development and other industries in addition to automotive and aerospace & defense. Among these is advanced reporting, which is now more user-friendly and fully integrated with viewing. The powerful nominal/actual comparison module has also been made more user-friendly with easy-to-understand visualization of deviations of scanned objects from their reference data sets.
