Imagine having a seasoned engineer at your disposal, ready to assist at any moment. Atlas is more than just a source of information; it’s a trusted co-pilot, an on-demand engineering expert, and your key to unlocking unparalleled insights with Voyager, Lumafield’s browser-based scan analysis platform.

In this blog post, we’ll delve into five reasons why Atlas is transforming the way engineers work, offering a glimpse into a future where problem-solving is faster, knowledge is readily accessible, and innovation knows no bounds.

1. Atlas puts the world’s engineering knowledge at your fingertips

With Atlas by your side, the world’s specialized engineering knowledge is no longer confined to textbooks, manuals, or information silos. Atlas puts the collective wisdom of countless engineers and experts at your fingertips, ready to answer even the most technical questions. Whether you’re dealing with the details of a 3D surface scan or the intricacy of a Neptune industrial CT scan, Atlas’s expertise runs the gamut of engineering disciplines. 

What sets Atlas apart is its remarkable ability to transform complex concepts and guidance into plain language. You can ask Atlas questions in the most straightforward terms, and it responds with comprehensive but easy-to-understand insights. Atlas tailors its advice specifically to your scans, your needs, and your applications. There’s no more sifting through extensive research or struggling to determine if your case fits the mold – Atlas streamlines the process, saving you valuable time and accelerating decision-making.

2. Atlas quantifies deviation from CAD models and golden samples

Atlas is not just a repository of knowledge; it’s a powerful analytical tool that simplifies complex assessments of scan data using Voyager. One of its standout capabilities is its proficiency in quantifying deviations from CAD models and golden samples, making it an indispensable asset for quality control and design verification. With Atlas, you can automate a suite of comparative analysis workflows within Voyager. The CAD Comparison feature enables you to effortlessly compare CAD models to the manufactured part and quantitatively measure deviations. Voyager vividly illustrates the comparison through intuitive heat maps, making it easy to spot areas that need improvement. 

Atlas also facilitates Scan to Scan Comparison, allowing you to conduct longitudinal studies to track wear and monitor the lifetime performance of your products. There’s no better tool for identifying differences between golden samples and subsequent production runs, all while quantifying deviations and visualizing them with more accuracy than ever before. With Atlas, you unlock these advanced analytical capabilities, enabling you to make informed decisions swiftly and effectively.

3. Atlas automatically inspects your part for defects

Atlas optimizes quantitative analysis, transforming complex data into digestible and actionable insights for engineers of all backgrounds. With Atlas, you’ll gain the ability to perceive every nuance within your scans, as it diligently interprets the data, highlighting critical issues that require your attention. It excels at identifying anomalies, creating annotated bookmarks, and fostering focused exploration, ensuring that you don’t overlook any vital details. A perfect example is how Atlas simplifies Voyager’s Porosity Analysis workflow, automating the visualization and quantification of voids. This feature not only helps you pinpoint potential issues but also offers guidance for taking corrective measures, ensuring your products meet and exceed the highest quality standards. 

Atlas also helps steer Advanced Dimensioning, opening the door to extremely precise measurements of surface features in 3D scans, as well as internal features in industrial CT scans. With Atlas by your side, you’ll be well-equipped to navigate the complexities of quantitative analysis to accelerate quality control.

4. Atlas makes collaboration simple and efficient

Building on its strength as an inspection tool, Atlas facilitates efficient and streamlined collaboration within engineering teams. One of its key strengths lies in its ability to organize and centralize team knowledge, eliminating redundancy in engineering efforts. With Atlas, you can say goodbye to the time-consuming task of reinventing the wheel, as it intuitively catalogs and shares the collective wisdom of your team. 

Collaborating with peers becomes a breeze, thanks to Atlas’s seamless data-sharing capabilities. Scan data, insights, and accumulated expertise can be readily disseminated among team members, fostering problem solving that is both effective and efficient. Atlas serves as a centralized hub where engineers can convene, share insights, and advance their projects together, all while minimizing the duplicated efforts and maximizing productivity.

5. Atlas doubles your productivity and saves you months on iteration

Atlas is the ultimate productivity booster for engineers, effectively doubling your efficiency and shaving off valuable months from your iterative processes. By offering instant access to expert insights and analysis, Atlas eliminates the time-consuming task of manually interpreting complex data. Engineers can now redirect their focus toward innovation and creative problem-solving, rather than getting bogged down in the intricacies of data analysis. With Atlas by your side, you'll find yourself accomplishing more in significantly less time, making it a game-changer for engineering projects that demand both speed and precision.


From providing a library of engineering knowledge to simplifying complex analyses, automating inspections, enabling seamless collaboration, and doubling productivity, Atlas is the ultimate tool for enhancing manufacturing workflows. It streamlines processes, saves valuable time, and ensures precision at every step. But don’t take our word for it. We invite you to embark on your Atlas journey and experience these advantages firsthand.
