When clay models are manufactured, it is hard to tell what the internal features consist of without applying destructive testing. Industrial CT scanning can be a beneficial tool for inspecting clay models for internal weak spots such as porosity, inclusions or cracks. This method of inspection is non-destructive, leaving the model in tact and untouched. The results will be seen as a generated 3D rendering with 2D slice views at 3 different angles. The internal components can be seen in both views. Also a CAD file can be generated for further analysis in a different program, useful for many different purposes including reverse engineering. Another analysis that can be done is Part to CAD, which is comparing a scanned object to a CAD file of a prototype or ideal model. JG&A Metrology Center offers multiple different types of analysis to fit the needs of clients. To investigate the different types of analysis further, visit www.jgarantmc.com/ct-services/
