With the Volume Graphics product family, all kinds of analyses and visualizations can be carried out directly on data from industrial computed tomography (CT).

Version 3.2.4 Is Here

Volume Graphics introduces version 3.2.4 of its product family for the analysis and visualization of industrial computed tomography (CT) data – consisting of VGSTUDIO MAX, VGSTUDIO, VGMETROLOGY, VGinLINE, and myVGL. Version 3.2.4 boasts, among other things, a faster-to-use data quality analysis according to ASTM E 1695 and an extended interface between VGSTUDIO MAX and Digimat.

Highlights

Data Quality Analysis

The data quality analysis according to ASTM E 1695, which allows you to monitor the data quality of your CT scans over time in VGSTUDIO MAX, is now faster to use: You can select the slice to be analyzed directly within your analysis workflow. This eliminates the need for a separate pre-processing step to extract the slice from the scanned volume.

Digimat Export

The interface between VGSTUDIO MAX and Digimat has now been extended to also include the export of porosity information from CT scans into Digimat leading to a smooth and straightforward workflow which ensures that the exported .csv files can be directly imported into Digimat. No configuration of the export or post-processing of the files is required. The extended interface enables you to map microporosity in a statistical way onto a volume mesh by calculating the average porosity level for each cell of the mesh in VGSTUDIO MAX and then exporting it to Digimat. 

The extended interface between VGSTUDIO MAX and Digimat allows you to investigate the influence of porosity on the mechanical properties of fiber compounds, no matter whether the porosity is unintended or introduced on purpose, such as in foam injection molding processes. 

Moreover, when mapping fiber or porosity information onto integration meshes for the subsequent export to 3rd party software for structural simulation, the import of NASTRAN files as integration meshes now supports the large field format for tetrahedral elements.
