Brainstormers

Presentation: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1ri4NStsnLYXHR3CGkR8QbfmI8Q-Rj_AN-pWI2pbWOzI/edit#slide=id.p

This project is divided into two parts: 1. Automating detection of the volume of a brain given tiff files of a skull. 2. Scripting add-ons for Blender that allow users to compare multiple brains.

  1. Automating detection of the volume of a brain given tiff files of a skull.

  2. Scripting add-ons for Blender that allow users to compare multiple brains. Blender is an open-source tool for 3D modeling and video composition. Dowload here: https://www.blender.org/download/

    Blender offers a Python based API, which we are using to script taking multiple stl files, layering them, and changing their colors and transparency so that they can beviewed and compared simultaneously.

    TODO: Convert script file to Blender add-on so that it can be accessed from the Blender option menu. Align and scale brains. Currently, all brains are centered, but are not necessarily facing the same direction. Clean up code by extracting out classes.
