Advanced Tools for EBSD Processing
Merengue 2 ALGrId Utilities

Texture Generator

This utility allows the user to produce a textfile containing a texture. It is possible to simply have a list of grains or an advanced voronoi teselation that avoid grains with a high aspect ratio. After this it is possible to add coherent 60°<111> twins to divide the grains by two.

Download Run on windows 7. No requirements.


GB to Subset

This utility allows the user to produce a subset that contains all pixels adjacent to a grain boundary

Download requires Channel5 licence, please read the README file before use.


CPR -> CTF

This utility allows the conversion of many CPR files to CTF at once! It was developed to provide Channel5 user a quick way to export data to DREAM3D

Download requires Channel5 licence, please read the README file before use.
Please read the CPR2CTF_install.txt for instructions!

Add phase

This utility allows to add a new phase to an open Channel5 project. Then the project need to be saved for the phase to be permanently added. This may be use to separate permanently phases which have the same crystal structures:

  • primary alpha and secondary alpha
  • martensite and ferrite
  • etc
Download requires Channel5 licence, please read the README file before use.

ANG -> CTF

This program converts ANG files into CTF and take care of the hexagonal grid. It also converts the reference frame (Which channel 5 import module does not do correctly).

It has to be noted that if the original file had an 'HexGrid' the resulting map will be distored in Y by a factor equal to 1/cos(30) (approx. 1.15).

Download Run on windows 7. No requirements.
