Detecting and Investigating Defects in AM Using Image-Based Modeling

Synopsys and the Manufacturing Technology Centre are teaming up for a webinar this week on detecting and investigating defects in Additive Manufacturing using image-based modeling.

This webinar will be of interest for anyone working with AM designs that want to better quantify the impact of differences between an "as-designed" and "as-built part", wherein deviations can cause problems with manufacturing workflows.

Join us for this webinar where we focus on image based-modeling for non-destructive inspection and virtual testing of complex Additive Manufactured (AM) designs. These models are generated from X-ray CT scans of the "as-built" AM part, and compared to the "as-designed" CAD part to identify and analyze deviations. We will discuss work undertaken by MTC as part of the DRAMA project utilizing Synopsys simpleware software.

In this webinar you will learn how to:
Quickly and easily visualize 3D image data (CT, MRI, FIB-SEM...)
Accurately measure and obtain statistics from complex materials and parts
Turn 3D scan data into high-quality multi-part models
Get CAD, CAE and 3D printing models that work first time, every time
