Imaging Software For the Evaluation of 3D Printed Metal Parts

As 3D printing becomes more widely used, and final parts become more readily available, there is an increasing need to assess the quality of parts designed through additive manufacturing. For that reason, researchers at Nanyang Technological University Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed a new imaging method that could be used to identify the exact properties and characteristics of 3D printed metal parts. By analyzing the amount of material in the part and determining its microstructure, this new application of NTU could prove extremely beneficial in a number of industries, including but not limited to automotive and aerospace, where 3D printing is often used to design even end-use parts.
