Paper Abstract

Computed tomography (CT) has been shown to be an excellent nondestructive evaluation tool for measuring internal and external dimensions of manufactured components. Recent advances in CT-based metrology allow for CT data to be processed efficiently to produce full 3D models of scanned parts. This paper will talk about a number of applications for this technology including linking CT with rapid prototyping methods, using CT and rapid prototyping to produce rapid tooling, using CT as a metrology tool in a production environment, and linking CT data with engineering analysis. The paper will provide an overview of the current state of the art in applying CT-based metrology to manufacturing applications, will discuss actual application case studies, and highlight areas for future work in this area.
