3D X-ray Microscopy Software


3D.SUITE Software

Bruker XRM solutions include our comprehensive, in-house developed 3D.SUITE software for reconstruction, inspection, visualization, and analysis of the internal object structure.

3D Inspection with DATAVIEWER     

3 orthogonal projections through a concrete sample
  • Display reconstructed results as slice-by-slice movies or three orthogonal projections
  • Smoothing, linear and non-linear grey scale transformations, color coding
  • Differential image analysis between samples 

3D Visualization with CTVOX and CTVOL

3D rendered volume of a small stepper motor
  • Volume rendering to display reconstructed results as a realistic 3D object
  • Create animated movies flying around or through the object
  • Produce cut-away views
  • Adjust coloring and transparency
  • Export surface rendered models in STL format to 3D printers, or to 3D CAD software
  • Modelling using mobile devices


3D Image analysis with CTAN                 

Porosity analysis of a tree slice
  • Handles large data sets with ease
  • Density analysis
  • Open/closed porosity
  • 3D distances and angles
  • Thickness and separation
  • Extensive tool set for region-of-interest selection
  • Various thresholding methods, morphological operations, and filtering algorithms
  • Color coding of local orientation, thickness and separation
  • Automated batch analysis 


Bruker is a certified reseller of VGSTUDIO MAX, a software created by Volume Graphics for the visualization and analysis of CT data.  

VGSTUDIO MAX offers different modules that cover a wide range of industrial applications

  • Measurements on even the most difficult-to-access surfaces of a component (Coordinate Measurement Module)
  • Non-destructive defect discovery in castings, including prediction of pore cuts (Porosity/Inclusion Analysis Module)
  • Defect analysis according to specifications P 201 and P 202
    (Enhanced Porosity/Inclusion Analysis Module)
  • Comparison of manufactured parts with CAD data, mesh data (.stl), or other voxel data (Nominal/ Actual Comparison Module) 
  • Wall thickness analysis: localization of areas with an insufficient or excessive wall thickness or gap width (Wall Thickness Analysis Module)
  • Automation through the modular use of macros in different contexts
  • Determination of cell structures in porous foams and filter materials
    (Foam Structure Analysis Module)
  • Calculation of fiber orientations and other relevant parameters in composite materials (Fiber Composite Material Analysis Module)
  • Virtual stress tests for the non-destructive simulation of mechanical stress directly on CT data (Structural Mechanics Simulation Module)
  • Flow and diffusion experiments, e.g., on CT scans of porous materials or composite materials (Transport Phenomena Module)
