Edax Inc., in partnership with Carl Zeiss SMT, has unveiled 3-D visualization software for its orientation imaging microscopy electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) instrument. Within the OIM 3D, standard 2-D maps now can be used, and the information available through examination of this extra dimension reveals what is happening within the sample, not just on the surface. The 3-D visualization function is accessed with a click of a button, and data sets can be easily rotated and cross-sectioned at user-defined locations. The software extracts grains from the 3-D microstructure and rotates them in free space.
