fetal MRI segmentation, mesh rendering. doi:10.6084/m9.figshare.12950009

The following notes roughly describe the process to generate a mesh rendering in MeshLab, as above, from a volumetric medical imaging segmentation.

In MeshLab,
  • import .stl file
  • mesh component visibility and attributes
    • e.g., show: points, wireframe; hide: fill;
  • adjust renderer
    • e.g, x-ray
  • simplify mesh
    • e.g., Filters menu > "Remeshing, Simplification, and Reconstruction" > "Simplification: Quadric Edge Collapse Decimation."
      • "Help" will bring up descriptions to guide parameter selection
    • or choose one of many other approaches
  • pose
    • rotate and zoom
    • toggle off "View" > "Show Trackball"
  • save snapshot(s)
    • File > "Save snapshot"
    • change background as desired, e.g., transparent
