How 3D Non-contact surface measurement can improve your Additive Manufacturing process
Additive Manufacturing has quickly become an acceptable process within many areas of manufacturing. Complex designs with improved functionality are easily produced using additive methods, replacing traditional subtractive and formative processes. However, these additively manufactured parts present new metrology challenges.
Additive manufacturing produces parts with unique surface textures dependent on the printing technique, material used, and the process parameters. A variety of different technologies are being used to measure these samples- ranging from the traditional contact stylus to advanced X-ray computed tomography.
In this webinar, we will show how specific non-contact 3D optical metrology techniques can provide a complete solution for the characterization of the form and texture of additively manufactured parts. Through case studies, we will show how to measure and analyze as-built to post-processed samples.
