After an accurate surface has been determined, it is possible to calculate the localised wall thickness on part. A wall thickness can be calculated on mesh and volume objects. Wall thicknesses can be calculated using both ray firing and sphere growing methods.
Like a nominal actual comparison, a wall thickness analysis is typically displayed as a colour map on the surface of the part. It is then possible to see at any point what the calculated wall thickness is in that area.
While viewing the 2D slices a whisker plot which represents the wall thickness is visible.
Discrete points can be selected and the wall thickness measurement can be reported. This is possible in both 3D and 2D. Further to this, a histogram is generated displaying the spread off wall thickness throughout the part.
Once a wall thickness analysis is conducted it is possible to use it in conjunction with the porosity analysis. Pores can then be classified by the wall thickness area that they are located in.

OR3D invest in long range 3D scanning solution
OR3D are pleased to add the Reigl VZ400i to their fleet of 3D laser scanners. Its performance allows increases in data capture times per setup, and has ability to record objects over 800m away. This instrument has provided a step change in reducing c...
As is: A model made to be very accurate to the scan data, including all it’s imperfections existing on the real component.
Design intent: A model that has been reverse engineered from scan data to what is believed to be the original design.
See our Reverse Engineering services page for more information.
