Volume Graphics Releases Structural Mechanics Simulation for VGStudio MAX 3.0

Issue: 2017-01
Volume Graphics released the new Structural Mechanics Simulation Module for its extendable high-end software VGStudio MAX 3.0. Users can utilize the new, optionally available add-on module to predict how much force a part will theoretically withstand directly on CT data. Time-consuming and lossy meshing is no longer required. Virtual functionality tests can now be performed directly on the CT data obtained from real-world parts.

The New Structural Mechanics Simulation Module:

  • simulates mechanical stress directly on voxel data;
  • calculates values such as von Mises stress and hotspots;
  • supports three types of force: directed force, torque, and pressure;
  • enables non-experts to conduct complex simulations;
  • eliminates meshing as a source of error compared to established methods;
  • delivers results faster because complex meshing is no longer required; and
  • works even on huge data sets.

Service Pack 3 Updates the Entire 3.0 Family

The new Structural Mechanics Simulation Module is part of the recently released service pack 3, which updates the entire 3.0 family. This service pack offers a number of improvements for VGStudio MAX 3.0, VGStudio 3.0, VGMetrology 3.0, VG InLine 3.0, and myVGL 3.0. Service pack 3 adds new field of view (FOV) extension modes for CT reconstruction, which allow users to scan large objects without truncation or stitching the projection files – and all of this at full spatial resolution.

New Version Availability

Volume Graphics is happy to provide quotes for VGStudio MAX 3.0, VGStudio 3.0, VGMetrology 3.0, and VG InLine 3.0 upon request.

Volume Graphics also offers free test versions of VGStudio MAX 3.0, VGStudio 3.0, and VGMetrology 3.0 for temporary use.

myVGL 3.0 is available free of charge and can be requested on the Volume Graphics website.
