3D printing is the fastest growing manufacturing technology of this century. New materials, new processes, new machines appear on a daily basis. The success is undeniable and its future shines brightly, but also opens the door for new types of 3D printing defects.
As products with high complexity and a low number of units are the sweet spot of the technology today, first adopters are amongst aerospace, medical, and military usages, with high demands in quality, security, and certification.
Grain contaminations, trapped air, grain sizes, and shapes can be analyzed with VGSTUDIO MAX, automatically for tens of thousands of particles.
Filtering of the defects by, e.g., sphericity, compactness, or distance to surface allows to distinguish between defect formation mechanisms.
Conspicuous features in the melt pool can be looked up in the CT data to define regions of interest for thorough 3d printing defect analyses.
Dimensional variations also occur in additively manufactured parts, leading to complex warpage. VGSTUDIO MAX provides a full suite of measurement capability from complex alignments to customizable measurement reports.
Simulate directly on CT data or prepare your
CT data for export for simulation purposes.
Volume Graphics software gives you the tools to check your simulation workflows. Perform virtual stress tests or microstructure-level virtual flow and diffusion experiments directly on CT scans. Or create high-quality tetrahedral volume meshes for FEM simulations in third-party software.
By using the measurement capabilities of VGSTUDIO MAX on simulation results the assesment of the simuated and the real part is done in a consistent way throughout the whole product life cyle enableing objective results every time.
