Features for all users

  Improved zoom feature

  • Zoom in on your data using the mouse wheel or by drawing a rectangular selection when working with surfaces, profiles, images etc.

  3D views just got even better

  • MountainsMap® real-time 3D imaging feature has now been extended to new types of datasets: series of surfaces, series of profiles, hypercubes and more.

  Advanced options for 3D printing

  • Export 3D models in 3MF format (including color and texture management) and print them directly in 3D!

And also:
  • Use numerical results as input in operators: speed up analysis by defining a result contained in the document to be used as an input value.
  • Improved navigation in the analysis workflow.
  • More options for co-localization: correct perspective when superimposing surface/images.
  • New parameters: Stdi, Rpk, Rvk etc.
  • New file formats: to see full list, please visit www.digitalsurf.com/en/fileformats.html

What’s new for Surface Topography?

  New method for leveling

  • Working with multi-plane surfaces? The new "Minimum zone" option for leveling makes eliminating slope quick and easy.

  Holes/peaks: visualize and calculate volumes in just a few clicks

  • Positions of holes and peaks are displayed immediately as 2 different colors
  • Parameters are calculated instantaneously as you select the zone you wish to study

And also:
  • New options for extracting profiles: extract an average profile or one that goes through the lowest or highest point of your surface.
  • Get more out of your 3D views: display contour lines.
  • Patching simplified: let MountainsMap® automatically find the best overlap.
  • Optimized tools for stitching.
  • New logarithmic mode for displaying Power Density Spectrum (PSD).

What’s new for Profile & Contour Analysis?

  Enhanced tools for subtracting profiles

  • MountainsMap® automatically detects the position of profiles to be used in the calculation
  • Define zones to be excluded (useful for comparing measurements taken on both new and worn parts)

  Visualize dominant waviness (WD) profiles

  • Display the dominant waviness (WD) profile used to calculate VDA 2007 dominant waviness parameters WDSm, WDc and WDt (parameters defined by the German Association of the Automotive Industry)

And also:
  • Label elements in series of profiles: choose which profiles to display and use a key to identify each.
  • Contour analysis: display and export points coordinates, create an index point starting from the end of a profile, access new options for displaying axis graduations etc.

What’s new for Scanning Electron Microscopy?

  Take single SEM image reconstruction to the next level

  • Innovative 3D reconstruction of single SEM images featuring multiple objects and balanced lighting conditions.
  • New possibilities for image segmentation and further analysis (particle counting, characterization etc.)

And also:
  • Enhanced quad image reconstruction operator: new options for Z- calibration
  • Stereo reconstruction operator: now available on series of 2 images

What’s new for Spectral Analysis?

  All-new tool for joining hyperspectral cubes

  • Join two hyperspectral cubes measured at the same place but at two different wavelength ranges

  Now resample your hyperspectral data

  • Resample hyperspectral cubes along the X or Y axis, for example to obtain the mean spectra

And also:
  • Bands View: extract spectra from the Bands view study and export individual color images.
  • Spectrum analysis: display Gaussian or Lorentzian equations.
  • Easily visualize your data in different modes: strips view, stack view and normalized view.

Plus dozens of other productivity updates and feature enhancements!
