To further verify the correct processing of my Cubical Marching Squares-implementation (aka: CMS) – and because I grew fed up looking at my 3D perlin-noise – I have added support for loading raw CT/MR data. There are two freely available datasets from Stanford, hosted at the Stanford Volume data archive. Here is my CMS-library at work on the CThead volume data-set… A handy side-effect is that I have also implemented a viewer for these raw (16 bit, unsigned short) volume data-sets, which allows to easily scrub through all slices via…read more


Baby-Steps with CMS

Posted by in Uncategorized

I’ve managed to finish the classification of all surface-intersections in my Cubical Marching Squares-implementation (aka CMS). As a small show-off, I have added support of displaying multiple iso-surfaces at the same time with different colors… Finally I’ve also started to test some CT- and MRI-volume-data-sets with my CMS. But that’s not fully working yet or rather not up to the visual quality I’m targeting. In the long run, I’ll add a dedicated ray-caster rendering-mode, which is the preferred method for visualizing that kind of volume data anyway. This is so…read more
