About This File

After one week of practicing with dr. Mike's tutorials, I was able to create 3D model of pyramidal neuron from 10gb CLSM (confocal laser scanning microscopy) Tiff slide. I almost burned my video card, but in the end I done it :)
First I used Fiji to convert .tiff slide to binary (Process/Binary/Make Binary). Then I used Dilate function to reduce the size (Process/Binary/Dilate) and I cropped one of the most promising neurons (Image/Crop). I saved my stack as a .tiff and I used 3D Slicer to create volume (Volume Rendering), to convert it to label map and to export it as .stl. Finally I used Meshmixer to remove the artifacts, to decrease my triangle budget and to add a mild smooth effect. The result is here. I hope my experience will help you in your future projects. I'll create video tutorial as soon as I can.

Amazing work! This is incredible that you have created a 3D printable neuron that only exists in nature on a microscopic scale.


I took the liberty to create a 3D render of your STL. I don't know if neurons are really yellow, but in anatomy books they always color them that way. 




Thanks for sharing with the community, and we will look forward to your tutorial!


Dr. Mike
