Golf Ball Dimple

Surface Texture Golf Ball Dimple - Digital Metrology

This dataset shows a dimple on a Titleist Pro V1 golf ball. 

The logo printing is just barely visible in the dimple. We can highlight the printing a little more by applying a 4th-order polynomial fit (Analysis Settings > Geometry/Form > Polynomial, with “4” as the x-order and y-order values).

Filtering will bring out the printing even more. Try applying a 2nd order Gaussian Long Wavelength Filter (Analysis Settings > Filtering > 2nd Order Gaussian with a 0.25 mm cutoff).
