Additive manufacturing (AM) allows for the production of previously unseen parts with any degree of complexity for organic shapes or internal features. In aerospace applications, engineers can take full advantage of these new design possibilities to optimize parts under consideration of weight reduction without losing mechanical strength. Before such parts are used in-flight, they typically have to pass a thorough quality inspection. Such an inspection should ideally be non-destructive and compliant with the geometrical complexity of the samples. Here we present a case-study on the non-destructive quality evaluation of additively manufactured reaction wheel brackets for the Eutelsat KONNECT satellite. To have a full 3D inspection of the material health of these brackets, we used industrial computed tomography (CT) imaging. This x-ray based method results in a 3D volumetric dataset of the sample that can virtually be sliced through any chosen plane of section. By this, voids such as porosities, foreign particle inclusions, or lacks of fusion can be visualized. This data can further be used to compare the geometry of the actual part to its nominal CAD data in order to highlight shape deviations and thus provides a comprehensive inside view on quality topics relevant for AM parts.
