At the recent 3D Printing Industry Awards ceremony in London, Hexagon‘s Volume Graphics CT data analysis software was named the top performer in the 3D scanning or metrology category. This underlines the importance of the software in additive manufacturing and beyond.
Although the focus of this annual award is on additive manufacturing, Volume Graphics is used across all industries. In the automotive, aerospace and defense industries, manufacturers use the software to inspect parts and improve designs, whether they are 3D printed or made with other technologies.
Engineers researching novel materials and manufacturing methods are increasingly turning to industrial CT scanning for highly accurate, non-destructive evaluation of product robustness and performance. Volume Graphics is a leading developer of visualization and analysis software technologies that interpret data from CT scans to identify structural and design-related deviations that can affect part quality. These insights help engineers optimize their design and engineering strategies.
Celebrating with staff at the global company’s Heidelberg, Germany headquarters, Volume Graphics General Manager Dr. Daniela Handl said, “I want to express my deepest gratitude to those who voted us 3D Scanning or Metrology Company of the Year! What an amazing testament to the work of our incredible team—their commitment to excellence, innovation, and collaboration has been the driving force behind our success. While this award is a momentous achievement, it is also a reminder that our journey is far from over. We stand at the forefront of innovation, and there is so much more to explore, create, and achieve together.”
Volume Graphics’ recognition at the 3D Printing Industry Awards highlights the important role of software in modern manufacturing technology. The industry recognition confirms that Volume Graphics is a critical tool for engineers to increase product quality and design efficiency. This success also underscores the continued importance of innovation and technological development in the 3D printing industry.
