Software developer Volume Graphics says that it has entered into a multi-year official supplier agreement with the Renault F1 Team to develop computed tomography (CT) non-destructive testing, including the inspection of additive components.

The team plans to use Volume Graphics’ VGstudio Max software which can identify important 3D printing defects. Users can also analyze raw materials such as powders, check the melt pool environment and compare it with CT data, and perform both dimensional metrology and defect analysis on and in the finished part, the company said.
