IJ Plugins: 3D I/O
Plugins for reading and writing in 3D formats:
MetaImage Reader - reads from MetaImage format used by ITK.
MetaImage Writer - writes a 2D image or a 3D stack to MetaImage format used by ITK.
Option Save in single file indicates whether the image should be saved in a single file
(extension *.mha) or the header and the image data should be saved in separate files (with extensions *.mhd
and *.raw respectively.)
VTK Reader - reads format used by VTK.
VTK Writer - writes a 2D image or a 3D stack in format used by VTK.
Export as STL - interprets intensity in 2D image as height and writes the height surface in
STL format. Data can be saved either in
binary or ascii (text) format. Binary format produces much smaller files.
Option Save sides enables generation of the mesh for sides and the bottom.
Plugins install under Plugins > 3D IO menu.
