Pore3D is a software toolbox for quantitative analysis of three-dimensional images.
The core of Pore3D consists in a set of state-of-the-art functions and procedures for performing filtering, segmentation, skeletonization and quantitative analysis of three-dimensional data. Although three-dimensional data can be produced by several techniques (for instance: magnetic resonance, x-ray scattering or confocal microscopy), the library was developed and optimized for micro-CT (Computed Tomography) data.
Pore3D features are available through the high-level scripting environment IDL. Pore3D has been tested with IDL 64-bit from versions 6.4 to 8.5.
If you use this software please cite: F. Brun et al., Pore3D: A software library for quantitative analysis of porous media (2010) Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research, Section A: Accelerators, Spectrometers, Detectors and Associated Equipment, 615 (3), pp. 326-332.
Binaries for Windows 64-bit are provided. The .zip file can be downloaded from the Releases section of this GitHub repository (https://github.com/ElettraSciComp/Pore3D/releases/).
Decompress the .zip file and make the extracted .dll and .dlm files visible to IDL. The simplest way for this is to copy the Pore3D files into an internal IDL folder similar to C:\Program Files\Exelis\IDL85\bin\bin.x86_64. Administrative permissions are required in this case.
User documentation in HTML format can be downloaded from the Releases section of this GitHub repository (https://github.com/ElettraSciComp/Pore3D/releases/). Just decompress the .zip file and run the "Open Guide" link (or equivalently browse the internal folder and open with your Internet browser the file named Index.html).
The software has been developed in collaboration with the University of Trieste (http://www.units.it).
