Operating system: Win 7
Expected behavior: Export an OBJ (as seen on screen)
Actual behavior:No option to export (or in one case a 0 byes .OBJ)
Hi, first time caller and I’m having problems exporting an .OBJ from a CT scan. I have no medical background and all this is very new to me, maybe someone will be kind enough to point out where I’m going wrong.
Here’s my method:
I got the CT scan from here, I had to convert it to a nii.gz file with dcm2niigui that comes with mricron.
Drop the nii.gz file into 3D Slicer
Add Volume Rendering with the input set to the new file, click the eye open, choose the preset Bones (say, CT AAA2 or CT-Fat) I basically want to export out three obj files, skin, bones and fat respectively.
And this is where things get fuzzy:
Click Editor, add generic anatomy colours.
Click Make Model Effect, click apply (wait a moment)
click Go To Model Maker
in Models click create new Model Hierarchy
in model Maker parameters
uncheck generate all models
check filter type to Laplacian
That should allow me to save polydata that I want. Only it doesn’t and I’ve tried for several hours now and I’m not getting any closer to what I want. Which is essentially exporting what I see on the screen (bones, fat) as an obj. I’ve managed to do the skin layer by using ThresholdEffect, but that’s about it
Can anyone help me out?
