    Getting from DICOM to 3D printable STL file in 3D Slicer is totally doable...but it is important to learn some fundamental skills in Slicer first if you are not familiar with the program. This tutorial introduces the user to some basic concepts in 3D Slicer and demonstrates how to crop DICOM data in anticipation of segmentation and 3D model creation. (Segmentation and STL file creation are explored in a companion tutorial ) This tutorial is downloadable as a PDF file, 3D Slicer Tutorial.pdf or can be looked through in image/slide format here in the blog 3D Slicer Tutorial.pdf

    Dear all First of all thank you so much Dr Mike for this wonderful website. I am with the University of Michigan and been doing some research on teeth morphology using Micro CTs. I am working mostly with MeVislab frameworks and Mimics. Regarding slicer I would like to ask if it is possible to import TIFF files as slices instead of DICOM files. Each time I try to import data in TIFF my slicer version keeps crashing. Any tips? Best Regards Diogo

    I haven't tried importing tiff's but one thing to try would be to use ImageJ to convert a stack of tiffs to an nrrd file for loading in 3DSlicer. Mike (not Dr. Mike;)

    This 3D printable STL file contains a model of the skull of a edentulous (without teeth) patient was derived from a medical CT scan. This model was created using the Imag3D 3D model creation service 0522c0909

    The file is really well constructed by michaelmplatt. To print it you have to use raft and support.

    Hi Diogo, I have started working with microCT and can't get them in to Mimics. However, I have had great success with 3DSlicer. It's very slow with the tiff stack, but if I import the tiff stack to Fiji and save it as a .nrrd file, then Slicer reads it much faster. Terrie P.S. What version of Mimics are you using? I have 17 and 18 and they both seem to have a hard time with tiff stacks.

    Formlabs has a new wash and cure station for Form 2 and Form 1+ SLA printers. It looks like buying both the wash and cure together will run you $1200 at this time, and they are only taking preorders. But, this is an interesting advance to their line of high quality yet low cost SLA printers.

    I think it is possible to import a stack of TIFF or JPG files in Slicer using the Add data feature. Once the images are imported you will need to tell Slicer how far apart they are spaced, since unlike a DICOM series, individual TIFF files have no information about slice spacing. I haven't tried this personally, but here is a link. mikefazz is correct about ImageJ, and its derivative, Fiji. I have had some trouble with the left-right and cranial-caudad orientation of the file getting mixed up with Fiji which required me to import the data into Slicer anyway to do a mirror transform. Maybe you will have better luck. If you are creating dental files using Mimics I would suggest you also give the democratiz3D service on this site a try. Once you load your file into Slicer you can export it into NRRD format (anonymized) and upload it to democratiz3D. Conversion to STL takes about 15 minutes and it is scalable, meaning you can upload multiple files and it will process them all concurrently. As of March 20, 2017 there is improved support specifically for dental CT files (see version history here). The main reason to use the automated democratiz3D is that it saves time over Mimics and can do batch processing of multiple jobs simultaneoulsy. Also, it is free compared to thousands of $$$ for Mimics, but since you already have a Mimics license that may not be important to you. On another note, I am planning on doing a dental scan specific tutorial soon. Look for that in the coming weeks. Good luck! Dr. Mike

    In this brief tutorial we will go over how to use Meshmixer to create a hollow shell from a medical 3D printable STL file. Hollowing out the shell, as shown in the pictures below, can allow you to 3D print the model using much less material that printing a solid piece. The print will take less time and cost less money. For this tutorial we will use a head that we created from a real medical CT scan in a prior tutorial, " Easily Create 3D Printable Muscle and Skin STL Files from Medical CT Scans" If you haven't seen the prior tutorial, please check it out. To follow along with the tutorial, please download the accompanying file. This will enable you to replicate the process exactly as it is shown in the tutorial. >> DOWNLOAD THE TUTORIAL FILE NOW <<
