60 Second Surface Analysis – Missing Data Fill

3D texture data can look like a solid, continuous surface. But in reality, there’s space between the measured pixels, and some of those pixels may not have been measured at all. Missing Data Fill is a pre-processing step that bridges those bad pixels, making data easier to interpret. But sometimes looking at the Raw data, … Read more

60 Second Surface Analysis – Can I really measure this feature?

When we look at surface texture data from a measurement system, we have to consider whether the features we are seeing are real, or whether they might be noise or bad pixels. In this 60-Second Surface Analysis video we show how you can zoom in on a feature in OmniSurf3D software to see just how … Read more

60 Second Surface Analysis – Profile and Surface Display Types

Analyzing surface texture data is a process, and there are lots of settings along the way. So, how do you know what you’ve done to the data when you change something? OmniSurf and OmniSurf3D surface analysis software guide you through the process and show you what happens at each step. In this short video we … Read more

60 Second Surface Analysis – TraceBoss+ Image Explorer

TraceBoss+ lets you analyze your surfaces by the numbers, and it also helps you SEE what’s happening with your process. This short video shows how the Image Explorer feature lets you import an image of a surface, calculate the crosshatch angle, and zoom and pan to explore the surface quality. Best of all, you can … Read more

Interactive Cropping in OmniSurf3D

The new Interactive Cropping tool in OmniSurf3D lets you rotate your surface texture data to quickly line up the cropping tools to the data. It’s a great time-saver that helps you get to the answers you need, fast.

60-Second Surface Analysis – Analyzing Part of a Profile

To get to the surface roughness data we want, we need to focus on the part of the profile that matters. OmniSurf software includes several tools for quickly and easily selecting a region for analysis. We’ll show how to use those tools in this 60 Second Surface Analysis video.
