GOM Volume Inspect is part of GOM’s new software platform GOM Inspect Suite, that embraces and facilitates the complete workflow from scanning to reporting for a maximum ease of use. With its all-in-one GOM Inspect software, 3D metrology specialist GOM "has become the gold standard in many industries", it claims.

GOM Volume Inspect comes with a broad range of volume inspection functionalities for free, including 3D volume rendering, display of 2D volume slices as well as defect detection and visualization. The free software can be downloaded here: www.gom.com/goto/61ad

Additionally, the full version is available as a free 30-day trial.

GOM Volume Inspect comes with a full 3D data analysis to evaluate a part’s quality and to optimise the manufacturing process. As the software features a clever on-demand data management concept, it delivers high performance at any time – even in case of huge volume data packages – and speeds up analysis processes.

Volume Inspect includes a powerful volume rendering function that visualises the whole part, including the internal structures. Furthermore, the user can cut the object at any point and view it layer by layer, in order to see smallest details and gain in-depth information about the quality of the part.

The software also automatically detects any volume defect in a part, such as shrinkage cavities, and accurately evaluates the quality by checking defect dimensions including volume, diameter and distance from outer casing.

Moreover, it is possible to evaluate the dimensions of CT volume data – be it full-field evaluations, GD&T or inspections of geometric dimensions on the outside of the part as well as on internal structures. GOM Volume Inspect walks the user through the complete analysis process and delivers the measured results in a transparent report with a single mouse click. The report may include snapshots, images, tables, charts, text and graphics.

GOM Volume Inspect also includes a function that allows the user to load volume data of several parts into one project and execute a trend analysis on this data. This automated comparison is a true advantage for quality assurance managers who measure parts on a regular basis in order to derive a quality trend from the measurement data. The function works on part-to-part comparisons, e. g. when comparing identical parts delivered from different suppliers.
