X-ray imaging provides a non-destructive means to measure internal features of a workpiece, and CT offers unique capabilities for internal measurements in 3-D. However, due to the computational nature of CT and its indirect measurement process, assessing its efficacy for dimensional metrology is essential. CT reconstruction artefacts are of primary concern as they may influence measurements. In this paper we investigate the effect of varying material thickness on CT reconstructions for metrology. We show that applying several thicknesses of material does not present significant issues for CT-based metrology. The results advocate further exploration of CT as a means for internal workpiece measurement and metrology.
