  • Figure 1 - SQual Interface

Purpose: This interface is primarily for metalforming application, and is used to display surface quality of a stamped part. Often, the final part may have wrinkles or depressions. This surface quality display generates something similar to zebra stripes on the part surface. A bend in a stripe is generally an indication of a change in surface quality.

Controls:

  • cbc Cos Light - Fringes based on cosine surface normal and light direction
  • cb Cos View - Fringes based on cosine surface normal and view direction

X
 X normal component of light direction vector
Y
 Y normal component of light direction vector
Z
 Z normal component of light direction vector

  • cbc Black White - Fringes colors in black and white only
  • cb Angle - Fringes based on the angle instead of the cosine of the angle

  • # of levels: Number of fringe levels (2, 5, 7, 10, 15, 20, 30, 50)

Fit
 Apply fringe range

  • Min: Minimum level for fringe range
  • Max: Maximum level for fringe range

Apply
 Calculate surface quality fringes
Done
 Close surface quality interface
