The majority of metallic and ceramic engineering materials of interest are polycrystalline. The ability to characterise this crystallographic microstructure, nondestructively and in three-dimensions, is thus a powerful tool for understanding many facets of materials performance. The introduction of diffraction contrast tomography as an additional imaging modality on the ZEISS Xradia Versa laboratory X-ray microscope has opened up a whole new range of possibilities for studies of the effect of 3D crystallography on materials performance. The nondestructive 3D crystallographic imaging capabilities of the laboratory diffraction contrast tomography technique (LabDCT), complements the structural data obtained by traditional absorption-based tomography and together they provide an unprecedented insight into materials structure. Here we will present a selection of results of LabDCT with particularly emphasis on its nondestructive operation. We will discuss the boundary conditions of the current implementation and point to the future of the technique.
