2D DICOM (CT) Images to 3D STL Mesh Conversion using 3DRACS v1.7.0

How about to move into medical industry? just a try… Now you will be able to convert Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance (MR), CR, US scan images into triangular mesh. After that you can print out using 3D printing tech. 200 DICOM images of a human brain are imported in 3DRACS v1.7.0 and converted into …

Correct Normals and Triangle Edges Winding (3DRACS v1.7.0)

Whenever we deal with triangles in 3D graphics, there is always a chance to face one terrible issue that is triangle/edge winding. It is like hell important for a lot of advanced algorithms because of normal vectors. I started to code this algorithm 6 months ago, spent weekends, days and nights, and still couldn’t code …

Capturing Color and Texture of an Object in Real-time 3D Scanning using 3DRACS v1.7.0

Finally, 3DRACS v1.7.0 crossed its limits. See its real-time 3D scanning power. Now any real-world object can be scanned with its original color and texture. Wait for the new version.

Realtime 3D reconstruction in action (video)

This video shows that how we can perform real-time 3D surface scanning in 3DRACS v1.2.2. It also presents the way of making the same centers of projector and camera lenses which is important for accurate 3D measurements. Reconstructed shape can be further analyze by observing graphs of different cross-sections.

Working on Real-time Surface (triangular mesh) Scan

Real-time Surface Scan: Real-time point cloud scanning is already done in previous versions. Now I am working on real-time surface scanning in which a user will be able to visualize the surface of the scanned model in real-time, even with the compatibility of post-processing features. After extracting point cloud, the triangular mesh is directly generated …

Working on “Pick And Delete” Feature

Post Processing of Scanned Point Cloud: It has much importance in all kinds of scanning systems because sometime the scanned point cloud has some noisy or unwanted points/vertices that should be removed before exporting to triangular model. Therefore, I am working on this algorithm in which User will be able to pick the noisy or …
