Webinar: Introduction to DREAM.3D and SIMPL
An introduction to the Methods and Software Tools for 3D Microstructural Science Workshop
Live event held Thursday, March 17, 2016

This webinar will introduce the open-source Digital Representation Environment for the Analysis of Materials in 3D (DREAM.3D) software tool and its underlying data structure, the Spatial Information Management Protocol Library (SIMPL). The various data structure components of SIMPL will be presented and participants will be shown how these components can be utilized in DREAM.3D to enable complex workflows for the analysis of 3D materials data. Several applications to practical problems will be presented to showcase the capabilities of SIMPL and DREAM.3D. An introduction to navigating the interface of DREAM.3D will also be given.

This webinar is intended to provide an introduction to the Methods and Software Tools for 3D Microstructural Science Workshop, to be held on July 14–15, 2016 in St. Charles, Illinois. Viewing this webinar is strongly recommended for workshop attendance, though it is not a requirement. Visit the workshop website for more information.


This webinar is targeted towards the practicing researcher in either academia or industry who is interested in learning novel tools and methods for the quantitative analysis of 3D microstructural data, and for those who plan to register for the in-person workshop.

Sean Donegan is a research scientist at BlueQuartz Software and is one of the primary developers behind the DREAM.3D project. He has broad experience in 3D materials science, including modeling and simulation at both the microstructure and continuum scales, statistical quantification of microstructure, generation of synthetic microstructures, and correlative data fusion and analysis across length scales. Since 2014, he has spearheaded the technical efforts to extend DREAM.3D from specialization in microstructure data to a generalized hierarchical framework for materials analysis in many dimensions. Donegan currently leads efforts to apply the DREAM.3D suite to analysis of process model output coupled with experimental measurements for correlative forecasting and materials process design.

Michael Groeber is currently a material research scientist in the Metals Branch of the Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, Air Force Research Laboratory, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. His research projects focus on the quantification and representation of microstructure for improving process and property modeling. Groeber is a principal developer and inventor of DREAM.3D, a unique software package that integrates several digital microstructure tools that will facilitate the advancement of integrated computational material science and engineering (ICMSE) in the Air Force and outside. Additionally, Groeber has worked on creating autonomous, multi-modal data collection systems that integrate real-time analysis to optimize microstructure data collection and analysis. Groeber received his bachelor’s degree in materials science and engineering from The Ohio State University in 2003, followed by a Ph.D. from The Ohio State University in 2007. Groeber has published over 35 peer reviewed journals and three book chapters, and has presented over 15 invited international presentations.

The live webinar event was held on March 17, but access to the OnDemand Webinar Recording is still available, free of charge.

Please note that workshop registration is not required to participate in this webinar. For more details or to register for Methods and Software Tools for 3D Microstructural Science Workshop, visit the workshop website.
