Transparent or shiny surfaces without scanning spray
Note that the window of the car is made out of transparent plastic material. For a CT scanner this is not different from a non-transparent plastic. The scanner only “sees” X-ray absorption and not visible light and it’s behavior.
We made an extra scan of this single component. And because the dimensions are smaller than the complete car we can zoom in a bit further with the CT scanner. This increases the resolution of the resulting volume and surface mesh.
This is useful if you part has tiny details or if you want to investigate flashes, misalignment of mold inserts or ejector marks for example.
This component is scanned at 24 µm voxel size
and the complete car is scanned at 66 µm voxel size.
