Lumafield's Voyager software now features a new Revolving Slice Plane tool that allows users to define an axis and pivot point on any volume and then slice through the part by rotating around the pivot point.

The Revolving Slice Plane tool is particularly useful for:

  • Inspecting seals for leak paths
  • Analyzing thread engagement
  • Detect wear between mating cylindrical parts
  • Assembly analysis in fittings, tubing, and valves

Users can easily visualize the internal features of such parts and identify any defects or wear. For complex parts with intricate geometry, Revolving Slice Plane can be used to create cross-sectional views from any angle, providing a more complete understanding of the part's internal structure.

Revolving Slice Planes provides a versatile tool that can be used for a wide range of applications. With this feature, users can have more confidence than ever before when inspecting, analyzing, and verifying the design of cylindrical parts.
