Bruker Micro-CT Software

Bruker SkyScan micro-CT scanners come with Bruker’s 3D.SUITE software for image reconstruction, inspection, visualisation and analysis.



World’s fastest micro-CT reconstruction software

  • 10x – 100x faster than conventional CPU-based reconstruction.
  • Uses patented algorithms for acceleration, instead of extra hardware (saving space and running costs).
  • Available with all Bruker SkyScan instruments.
  • Upgrades are possible for existing systems.
  • Free one month demos available – contact us for details.

Tomography Visualisation Software


3D visualisation software

  • Volume rendering – reconstruct your micro-CT data and view it as a realistic 3D object.
  • Virtually fly around and through your sample and record movies.
  • Render cut-away images.
  • Edit colouring and transparency.
  • Export surface rendered models in STL format for 3D printing, or other 3D CAD software.
  • Compatible with mobile devices.

Porosity Analysis


3D image analysis software

  • Density analysis
  • Open/closed porosity
  • 3D distances and angles
  • Thickness and separation
  • Select complex regions of interest
  • Various thresholding methods, morphological operations and filter algorithms
  • Colour code your sample by local orientation, thickness or separation
  • Automated batch analysis


Alongside Bruker’s 3D.SUITE, data from SkyScan micro-CT scanners can also be processed with VGSTUDIO MAX, a software package from Volume Graphics for CT image visualisation and analysis of CT data. VGSTUDIO MAX is a high-end application with many useful capabilities:

  • Measure difficult-to-access surfaces inside components
  • Locate defects in castings, including pore cut prediction
  • Defect analysis compliant with specifications P 201 and P 202
  • Compare manufactured parts with CAD data, mesh data (.stl) and other voxel data
  • Measure wall thickness and identify regions with an insufficient or excessive thickness or gap width
  • Modular macros for automating processes
  • Determine cell structures in porous foams and filter materials
  • Calculate fibre orientation in composite materials – and other relevant parameters
  • Virtual stress testing – non-destructively simulate mechanical stress from CT data
  • Flow and diffusion experiments on porous materials, composites and more
