HAPI 1.0 is required to build H3D API 2.0.

MedX3D

MedX3D is an implementation of Volume Rendering component of X3D.

MedX3D contains nodes for visual rendering of volume data, such as medical data from CT/MRI-scans. A correct X3D file using X3D volume rendering component nodes must specify a volume data node, a volume style node and the data for which to apply this style.
The existing volume data nodes are:

  • VolumeData
  • SegmentedVolumeData
  • ISOSurfaceVolumeData

The styles to choose from are:

  • BoundaryEnhancementVolumeStyle
  • CartoonVolumeStyle
  • EdgeEnhancementVolumeStyle
  • ISOSurfaceVolumeStyle
  • MIPVolumeStyle
  • OpacityMapVolumeStyle
  • ShadedVolumeStyle
  • SilhouetteEnhancementVolumeStyle
  • ToneMappedVolumeStyle
  • ComposedVolumeStyle

The formats for volume data supported by MedX3D toolkit are:

  • raw
  • DICOM
  • nrrd

The MedX3D toolkit also contains various extra nodes not specified in the specification for the volume rendering component, such as an implementation of the Marching cubes algorithm and various nodes to extend the functionality of MedX3D.

MedX3D does not contain any specific haptic features.

The X3D specification for the Volume Rendering component has not yet been released so this toolkit might have to change a bit in the future. When the Volume Rendering component specification is released it is likely that the MedX3D nodes will be incorporated in H3DAPI and not released as a separate toolkit.

  • VHTK 1.5.1 source code
    This is the GNU GPL release of Volume Haptics Toolkit version 1.5.1 for H3D API version 1.5.

It is also possible to activate dynamics to make the haptic feedback consistent with changes in the transform so that the haptic instrument is pulled with a rotating data set.
    Other features in this release include glyphs visualization and a way of distributing seed points for stream-ribbons and glyphs in the glyphs visualization. See the CHANGES file and documentation for details.
