Product information

Materialise Inspector always consists of a slice viewer. If you are looking for a tool that automates your layer-by-layer inspection, the Quality Module will fulfil your needs.

Slice Viewer Quality Module Technical information

Slice Viewer

Materialise has established many collaborations with machine manufacturers. By working together with the persons who develop the job files that are sent to your machine, we gained full understanding of these files, which is important when it comes down to quality. The slice viewer of Materialise Inspector offers a vast array of functions that enable you to evaluate a build job. Thanks to its large data handling architecture, the slice viewer allows for a swift scrolling through slices and vectors, delivering a great user experience. Together with the other modules, it helps you to understand the process and perform a root cause analysis of the problems you encounter.

Slice Viewer

Materialise Inspector offers you

  • A variety of synchronized view windows, including a 3D view
  • A variety of color coding of vectors (by type, by order, by laser, thickness option…) to enhance visualization and comprehension
  • Platform display with grid view or scan field view
  • File and vector info
  • Measurement tools
  • Large data handling architecture

Quality Module

Today, 75% of the Metal AM machines are equipped with cameras, allowing you to monitor what is happening during the build process. The images taken before and after recoating can help you detect at least 60% of the errors, but when enormous stacks (thousands of images) are being generated, quality inspection can become a burden. The quality module of Materialise Inspector will allow you to analyze what happened during the build process in a time-efficient way. This will increase your confidence in the quality of the printed part. In addition, the multi-view configuration allows you to perform a root cause analysis in case of a build failure which provides insights for better data preparation.

Quality Module

Materialise Inspector offers you

  • Easy navigation towards potential problem areas
  • Detection of specific errors via thresholding
  • Multiple view options to enhance root cause analysis (3D view, image with threshold, vector image,...)
  • The option to save analysis reports

Key Benefits of the Quality Module

  • Analyze big data in a time-efficient way
  • Analyze every build in a consistent and repeatable way through calibration and thresholding methods
  • Gain insights in what happened in 3D thanks to the combination of views and reporting options. This way you avoid making the same mistake twice
