Title: Neutrons Image Additive Manufactured Turbine Blade in 3-D

The video displays the Inconel 718 Turbine Blade made by Additive Manufacturing. First a gray scale neutron computed tomogram (CT) is displays with transparency in order to show the internal structure. Then the neutron CT is overlapped with the engineering drawing that was used to print the part and a comparison of external and internal structures is possible. This provides a map of the accuracy of the printed turbine (printing tolerance). Internal surface roughness can also be observed.
