Reverse engineering is a process that creates CAD geometries from parts when none are available. This can happen for a variety of reasons ranging from old parts without 3D models to handmade parts. Depending on the use case of the part itself, there are several methods that allow the downstream processes to profit from a reverse engineered, physical product. Join this webinar to learn about these methods as well as our new module for CT-based reverse engineering.

Measuring in Multi-Material Assemblies

July 30, 10:00 AM CEST

Mounting parts into an assembly via screwing, gluing, or pressing can lead to deformations or defects in the individual parts, which ultimately hinders the assembly process. To inspect this without disassembling the part, industrial computed tomography is required. Join this webinar to learn more about the possibilities of industrial computed tomography to take a glimpse into, measure, and analyze assemblies.
We look forward to welcoming you at the webinar!

Simulation Week, July 6-9

Join our experts as they discuss how computed tomography serves as a reality check for simulation workflows during the Volume Graphics Simulation Week! 

Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) is a cross-disciplinary simulation workflow within Computer Aided Engineering (CAE). Via integration of simulation workflows across multiple scales and engineering disciplines, ICME considers the influence of manufacturing processes on part geometries and material microstructures and the resulting effects on part performance. While the intent of ICME is to consider all these interactions and effects in the virtual world before physical prototypes become available, real-world data are nevertheless required at various points in the ICME workflow, e.g., for the validation of manufacturing process simulations or the calibration of material models. Real-world data are also required for the simulation of effects of defects in material microstructures in as-built components, such as porosity or fiber misalignments. Industrial computed tomography (CT) is an important source of real-world data for ICME.

Volume Graphics software allows you to determine fiber orientations as well as map the resulting fiber orientation tensors to the cells of an integration mesh.

Additive Manufacturing Week, June 15-18

From powder to printed part, from lab to fab—Volume Graphics software gives you the insights to constantly push the quality boundaries of your additively manufactured parts and establish efficient workflows. But what can Volume Graphics software do for the quality inspection for additive manufacturing, exactly? How can it assist you in the dimensional characterization of lattice structures? How can you combine meltpool and CT data? And how do you speed up your process parameter optimization with CT?

In our webinars, we cover all these points and take it even further with a look at what happens before a part is manufactured and analyzed with CT and Volume Graphics software. Join our guest talks from MSC Software and simufact, both also part of Hexagon, to learn more about how simulation software is used in the design process and helps to reduce costs in the manufacturing of 3D-printed parts.
