In this study, we present a numerical framework for modeling three-dimensional (3D) diffraction data in Bragg coherent diffraction imaging (Bragg CDI) experiments and evaluating the quality of obtained 3D complex-valued real-space images recovered by reconstruction algorithms under controlled conditions. The approach is used to systematically explore the performance and the detection limit of this phase-retrieval-based microscopy tool. The numerical investigation suggests that the superb performance of Bragg CDI is achieved with an oversampling ratio above 30 and a detection dynamic range above 6 orders. The observed performance degradation subject to the data binning processes is also studied. This numerical tool can be used to optimize experimental parameters and has the potential to significantly improve the throughput of Bragg CDI method.
