Abstract

The ability to perform non-destructive areal surface analysis of the internal surfaces of additively manufactured (AM) components would be advantageous during product development, process control and product acceptance. Currently industrial X-ray computed tomography (XCT) is the only practical method for imaging the internal surfaces of AM components. A viable method of extracting useable areal surface texture data from XCT scans has now been developed and this paper reports on three measurement and data processing factors affecting the value of areal parameters per ISO 25178-2 generated from XCT volume data using this novel technique.
