creating a surface in Invesalius? Answered

Hi there!

We want to produce an stl of a heelbone from DICOM files to print and use in an operation. The edible Chocolate Brain was the inspiration to use Invesalius - meshlab I already know so this seemed like a good option.

there are, however, limited manuals in english and infos to figure out certain steps in the Program ... like creating the surface for the stl - the mask has already been taken care of and everything else looks right, just this one step isn't yielding the expected result.

a link of the document in question to look at - https://www.dropbox.com/s/3oinuz5goz15mws/Fersenbein.inv3

I would appreciate any help a great deal.

thank you & snowy regards from Vienna,
Eva Tucek

I published an English version of Invesalius in Instructables. about 5 years ago but I can't find it now. It's a pretty easy program. To convert a dicom file into stl there is an option which asks how you want to save the file. The images taken via MRI or CAT are saved in groups and the entire set can be saved as an stl which can be loaded into a slicer then printed if you wish.

Have you tried DeVIDE instead, out of interest ?
DeVIDE is a TU delft project.

I don't have an answer for your question, but out of interest, what will you use the 3d print of the heel bone for in the operation?
