Three-dimensional Analysis and Reconstruction of Additively Manufactured Materials in the Cloud-Based BisQue Infrastructure
A microstructure analytics and 3D reconstruction software package, DREAM.3D, was integrated as a module into a cloud-based platform, BisQue. Parallelization of DREAM.3D module executions and the ability to parameterize pipeline variables over a range of values have led to insights about the grain segmentation misorientation tolerance in TriBeam-collected 3D EBSD datasets of additively manufactured materials with complex anisotropic microstructures. Furthermore, a comparison in grain size measurements was made between standard 2D metallographic slices and 3D measures using BisQue’s parallelized DREAM.3D module executions. The direction of cloud-based data infrastructure and the prospects for impact in material science are also discussed.
