DREAM3D consists of data analysis tools (filters) that allow for the construction of customized workflows (pipelines) to analyze data. DREAM3D provides a flexible and extensible data structure that eases data transport between collaborators by storing data in a non-proprietary format.

DREAM3D makes the reconstruction of 3D data simple and straight forward. The development of additional features is ongoing and the DREAM3D development team welcomes your feedback whether you are a first time user or seasoned user.

DREAM3D is completely open source and free for anyone to use whether that is in a commercial, academic or research setting. We encourage every one to give it a try and provide feedback about your experience.

Source Code Availability: All source codes are publicly available through the GitHub repository. The GitHub web site also has the official bug tracker.

Features of DREAM3D

  1. 3D Reconstruction of EBSD data from EDAX (.ang), Oxford (.ctf) and Bruker (.ctf) data files. The reconstructions can utilize an array of alignment, cleaning, segmentation algorithms and coloring algorithms.
  2. Synthetic microstructures can be created using a set of automatically generated statistics or your own statistics.
  3. The reconstructed volumes can be exported as industry standard STL files, ParaView files (.xdmf), Abaqus (.inp). DREAM3D stores all data as HDF5 files by default.
  4. Many algorithms are available to extract various statistics about your data
