RE: [MORPHMET] Help with .tif files

2017-02-03 Thread Murat Maga
Alexa,
I believe Slicer reads tif files as a vector (RGB) image. You need to use 
“convert vector to scalar” module to convert it a grayscale volume. Next, you 
need to use the “editor” module to create a labelmap (binary) image that will 
be the basis for the isosurfacing operation to make a 3D model. Once you 
prepare your label map to your satisfaction, you can use the “model maker” 
module to turn it into a polygonial model, which you can save as ply, stl or 
vtk formats.

I suggest you go through their tutorials in detail on their website
https://www.slicer.org/wiki/Documentation/4.6/Training

this youtube video shows the process for an older version of slicer. Menus now 
look different, but the steps are identical

Subject: [MORPHMET] Help with .tif files

Hello.
I'm working with on ontogeny of irregular echinoids.
I'm able to get .tif files from CT scan, but I need 3D models in .ply format; 
when I try to get them in 3DSlicer, the software shuts down.

Could you help me with that? I need some advice, so I could start my analysis.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
