|Volumetric Bodies... The Exhibition|
This exhibit displays true 3D models of volumes through the use of a rapid prototyping technology known as 3D printing. These 3D models are the results of animations and deformations as described in [Correa et al. Feature-aligned Volume Manipulation, IEEE Visualization'06]. Our inspiration for this exhibit comes from Bodies, The Exhibition. Instead of using real bodies, we are using scanned volumes of the male dataset from the Visible Human Project [NLM] and other publicly available volumetric datasets. One of the volumes was printed as a plaster model using a ZCorp 450 system and arranged in a zoetrope.
Download the DataThe following are volume and surface data containing deformations. For the purposes of printing a structurally sound 3D model, we filled in data on the empty spaces resulting from deformation.
