VGMETROLOGY

The Universal Metrology Solution

Maximum Precision, Minimal CT Data Set Sizes

VGMETROLOGY is made for metrologists. Our universal metrology solution turns your computed tomography (CT) scanner into a comprehensive and precise metrology device.

Full-featured but nonetheless easy-to-use – VGMETROLOGY is made for metrologists.


VGMETROLOGY

  • Full-featured. VGMETROLOGY offers you the full metrology-related functionality of VGSTUDIO MAX including GD&T functionality.
  • Uncompromisingly accurate. VGMETROLOGY gives you the complete picture of all object surfaces – and saves it in the very compact .mvgl format.
  • Universal. VGMETROLOGY works natively on voxel, point cloud, mesh, and CAD data.
  • Easy-to-use. The focused range of functionality makes VGMETROLOGY easily accessible for new users.
  • Seamless. You can exchange files between VGMETROLOGY and other Volume Graphics products of the same generation.
  • Affordable. VGMETROLOGY costs significantly less than a comparably equipped VGSTUDIO MAX.

The Volume Graphics Metrology Kernel in VGMETROLOGY (Windows 64 bit) has been verified by the Physikalisch- Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB).*

* PTB (Germany’s national metrology institute) tested the algorithms based on the minimum-zone method (“Chebyshev”) and on the least-squares method (“Gauss”). These algorithms are used for coordinate measurement in VGMETROLOGY.


Features


Three Editions

  • All editions of VGMETROLOGY cost significantly less than a comparably equipped VGSTUDIO MAX.
  • Stand-alone edition VGMETROLOGY: Works with files that your CT scanner has generated (without prior surface determination).
  • Essential edition VGMETROLOGY ES: Determine the surface within VGSTUDIO MAX, save the project as a .vgl or .mvgl file, and open this file in VGMETROLOGY ES (except for surface determination, VGMETROLOGY and VGMETROLOGY ES are identical).
  • Viewer application VGMETROLOGY VIEWER: View projects saved in the .mvgl format, change the alignment of objects, and add basic measurements.

Keyword: .mvgl

The ".mvgl" file format packs everything metrologists need into one compact, easy-to-handle file. This file contains the best possible object surface without any loss in quality.
