Version 3.5.2 of VGSTUDIO is now available. Building on the innovations of version 3.4.x, you will benefit from the following new capabilities* in version 3.5.2:
Edit and view reports in Volume Graphics applications exactly as they would appear in the PDF. The completely new integrated reporting function introduced in version 3.4.4 lets you customize reports, automate their creation, and store them directly in your .vgl project:
Advanced table properties in the new WYSIWYG report editor give you full control over the page count of your report and let you focus your reports on aspects that are especially relevant. While the software creates the full set of results, you can now customize the sorting of rows within tables and limit the displayed rows to display only a subset of result components (for example, defects) or control the order of images (for example, to display the largest defects first).
Change the order and position of elements on a page to create customized report layouts in the WYSIWYG editor. You can now determine the element positions by entering numerical values, which comes in handy when you want to align elements with each other or easily compose text content and graphical elements by controlling the order of elements via the context menu.
Customizable report sections and images from external sources give you even more flexibility for your report layouts. In the WYSIWYG editor, you can now add empty sections, rename sections to more accurately describe their content, and enable/disable the background for individual sections. By incorporating external images, you can mix content created in Volume Graphics software with relevant external content to create stunning visuals, such as for impressive title pages.
Create entirely new report page layouts by combining arbitrary information from reported objects, for example, to create overview sections or sections that contain multiple result images of a part. You can choose from images, attributes, tables, and info fields and arrange them flexibly to customize the way results, settings, images, and other information are presented on report pages.
Customize the order of table columns and the size allocated to the individual columns directly in the report editor. For example, you can group important columns, move columns to the beginning of the table, and optimize the use of space on report pages by resizing columns. This feature brings customization options similar to the tables used in the original application dialogs to the new report editor.
Use new customization options to add text from the reported data or text entered by the user to your reports. Text from report data, such as group or image names, can be placed anywhere in the report, and user-entered text can be further customized by changing its size or text style (bold, underline, and italics).
Easily insert images from your drive or from other applications, for example, Microsoft PowerPoint, with copy and paste into the report editor. This saves time by removing the need to save and load images via file dialogs and simplifies workflows where external tools are used to generate report content.
Use copy and paste to easily insert text from other applications, for example, Microsoft Word, into the report editor. This allows you to easily re-use text from other sources such as specification documents or part descriptions.
With absolute references, you enjoy an entirely new level of customization in reports by adding content that may reference any results anywhere in a report. For example, you can now create title sections that reference arbitrary results from a report, overview sections that aggregate several results, or comparison pages that put similar results next to each other.
Customize your reports by changing the format of the displayed report date/time or project file path or by displaying the name of the reported object on a page, by means of additional info field options for report background and sections. This gives you more control over the way information is displayed on report pages, regardless of system date/time settings, and, in general, more customization options.
Re-arrange or duplicate existing layout elements by using multi-selection and copy and paste when creating custom report pages. This saves you valuable time, because you no longer have to reposition elements individually or go through the main edit menu to multiply elements.
By changing the order in which the pages of reported objects are displayed in the report, you can now semantically group report pages, even if the reported objects are at different positions in the scene hierarchy.
Re-create reports by using customized layouts for the content of a specific scene configuration, either automatically or manually. This allows you to easily create highly customized reports that exactly match and display the results of a specific type of inspection.
Directly import high-resolution volume data from ZEISS Xradia CT systems, including the correct settings for orientation and dimensions. Starting with version 3.4.5, support for the TXM format, which is typically used when analyzing the microstructure of material samples, eliminates the need for a time-consuming export of DICOM or TIFF on the CT system and their manual import into VGSTUDIO.
Load volume data from Hitachi Industrial CT systems. Version 3.4.3 (and higher) can import files in the HiXCT format, which is typical for Hitachi Industrial CT systems. This format optionally supports volumes coming from a multi-circle scan.
Save either the currently selected workspace window or a manually defined combination of workspace windows with a new save image option introduced in version 3.4.5. Depending on your manual inspection workflow, either may be more convenient for you—the new option in the dialog allows for both while keeping the shortcut and automatic storage of other image settings unchanged.
Save an image of the complete workspace as is. Since this new save image option is WYSIWYG, the created image reflects the overall size of the workspace and maintains the exact window positioning, even for irregular layouts.
Hold the alt key and drag the files to the application holding the left mouse button. This is much more intuitive than the previous option, which was performed with the right mouse button.
Directly import high-resolution volume data from Rigaku CT systems, including the correct settings for orientation and dimensions. This eliminates the need for a time-consuming manual import into VGSTUDIO MAX.
By combining the contents of multiple project files in a single scene, such as when analyzing multiple scans of similar parts in the same way, you can save a lot of time compared to manually merging each individual project.
By supporting data mapping and clamping for 14-bit data sets, you can now load data sets with a data range other than 16 bit, and by changing default mirroring, Volume Graphics software displays the scanned part identical to the Toshiba reconstruction software.
Import JSON files to use actual angular positions. As of version 3.4.3, the software supports JSON files, which are based on an open, non-manufacturer-specific standard.
Ambient occlusion gives 3D renderings in Volume Graphics applications more realistic shading and a feeling of depth. Without noticeable performance impact, the shading and rendering technique calculates how exposed to ambient lighting each point in a scene is. This provides realistic depth perception. It also improves the orientation in complex models and helps when visually inspecting and navigating in the 3D view. In computer graphics, this technology is known as Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO).
We've improved performance when it comes to rendering scenes that include a large number of ROIs and/or volumes, leading to a better user experience in heavily populated scenes, as is the case with multipart analyses and complex segmentations. The user experience is significantly improved by an up to 10 times higher frame rate, depending on the combination of items in the scene.
