Current 3D scanners produce more detailed scans than ever before, faster and cheaper. Meaningful and efficient processing of this enormous amount of data is becoming more and more of a challenge.

Aardworx offers state-of-the-art algorithms from high-performance visual computing to maximize the true power of modern computer hardware. Together with experts from various industries, we implement tailor-made solutions for users in the field.

Our Virtual Reality Viewer for Computed Tomography (CT) is an incredibly intuitive, high-performance VR volume visualization system.

„The Volume VR software installed fine and the result is insanely cool!!!! 😊 I've probably spent an hour just looking at volumes.“
Dr. Magnus Röding, RISE Research Institutes
„Components with complex free-form surfaces, are much easier to handle in 3D.“
Daniel Habe, Austrian Foundry Research Institute (ÖGI)
„I‘m a VR skeptic but this is particularly compelling.“
Prof. Mariah Meyer, University of Utah
„VR gives very intuitive access to 3D data, providing real added value in component inspection.“
Dr. Bernd Oberdorfer, Austrian Foundry Research Institute (ÖGI)

3D Technology for 3D Data

Volumetric datasets are difficult to manipulate on conventional 2D desktops. With complex scans you quickly lose track and even experts are not always able to develop a correct mental picture of all the spatial relationships. So why not explore your scans in true 3D?

Our virtual reality viewer for computed tomography (CT) does just that, by combining the high quality of the latest virtual reality (VR) technologies with a specially designed 3D rendering technology for this huge amount of data.

Insight from your data.
Explore your scans.
Understand your product.
Inspect every detail.
Measure interesting features.
Present your findings like never before.

CT is a widely-used technique for non-destructive testing of casting parts. Our Virtual Reality Viewer for Computed Tomography (CT) data allows you to explore your volumetric data in the most intuitive way - by literally setting your feet into the three-dimensional data realm. Take a walk in and around the casting parts, inspect pores, defects and inclusions by enlarging them to any size needed, and investigate them from any desired angle. Our newest feature allows to intuitively measure the size but also distance to surface of inclusions and pores.

  • CT of a weld. Outside, you see the crater of the welding endpoint.

  • On the inside, invisible in the real world, you find pores induced by heat.

  • Freely explore the weld in 3D. Inspect the pores. You can almost touch them!
