How do I choose the right software?

We use Dragonfly, VG STUDIO, and digiM, and recommend them depending on your CT analysis needs.

Dragonfly is a relatively inexpensive and easy-to-use yet very powerful software. It is our number one recommendation for materials and life science CT data analysis. Its segmentation wizard makes deep learning image segmentation accessible to beginners and often eliminates the headache associated with difficult image segmentation. You can use it for most materials science and life science applications, such as analyses of phase volume ratio, grain size distribution, fiber orientation, porosity, pore network, coating thickness, etc. They also offer a free non-commercial license.

VG STUDIO is the de facto industry standard for metrology applications, such as geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) analysis or nominal (CAD) versus actual (CT) comparison. Their algorithms have been tested and verified by PTB (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt) and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology). They also have comprehensive automation packages for process control.

One thing to keep in mind is that both Dragonfly and VG STUDIO require a high-end workstation to run properly. If you don't have a compatible computer yet, consider contacting us or the software manufacturer and ask for an online demonstration to start with.

If you don't want to deal with the maintenance of expensive computers and prefer an entirely cloud-based solution, DigiM I2S (DigiM Solution) offers that. DigiM also offers data storage and management service. If you anticipate collecting tens and hundreds of TB data, their data storage service might come in handy.
