reducing file size

Recommended Posts

Hi all.  I have an interesting CT of a dog thorax with metastatic osetosarcoma.  The file is over 500 MB so I can't load it.  I reduced it from 1100 MB to 791 but need to reduce further.  If I crop it more a good deal of the thorax will be lost.  Is there another way to reduce file size besides cropping?

It may be helpful to crop out the air around the body in the scan. This is dead space but still takes of file space. You can often reduce the file size quite a bit by cropping this out. Zipping the file will reduce the size, but right now democratiz3D cannot accept that file type.


Hope this helps.
