Volume Graphics Releases VGStudio MAX 3.0Volume Graphics GmbH39, Heidelberg, Germany
VGStudio MAX 3.0, the latest version of Volume Graphics’ high-end software for the analysis and visualization of industrial computed tomography (CT) data, is available now. This software enables companies to easily run comprehensive, non-destructive tests in the areas of research, production, and quality approaches to handling large data sets, support of point cloud data, more assurance. New features include a revised user interface, memory-saving flexible automation features, combinable analyses, and simulations based on CT data.
VGStudio MAX 3.0, which has been completely redeveloped to take full advantage of modern hardware, now supports fast SSD storage and GPU acceleration.
A new unload/reload data function for gray values drastically reduces memory requirements. This benefits both metrologists, who do not require the gray values of the object’s interior, and users, who edit and share high-resolution CT data sets.
VGStudio MAX 3.0 can also work with point cloud data in addition to voxel, CAD, and mesh data. Moreover, users can convert from one format to another.
For flexible process automation, macros can now be combined, rearranged, and reused like building blocks.
A new combined analyses feature lets users combine, e.g., a wall thickness analysis with a porosity/inclusion analysis. A defect is then not only classified according to its size, but also according to its size in relation to the local wall thickness.
The improved Coordinate Measurement Module, which allows users to measure even difficult-to-access component surfaces, offers new and enhanced object registration options, tolerancing of registration results, and line and surface profile tolerances.
A new Transport Phenomena Module performs virtual experiments on, e.g., CT scans of soil and rock samples, to identify material properties. Detailed information about VGStudio MAX 3.0 is available on the Volume Graphics website.
