Visualization and Segmentation
Imaging data of the cylinder head was acquired using an industrial CT scanner at 0.4 mm x 0.4 mm x 0.5 mm resolution, and loaded in Simpleware ScanIP. Volume rendering, opacity and colour mapping tools were used to visualize and reconstruct the data based on its underlying greyscale values. This led to the detection of small defects/voids in the cast. Further segmentation was carried out to separate valve seats from the cylinder.
