3D Printing, Visualization, and Immersive Display

Model and 3D print out of the head of the VHP male dataset.
Project information

The 3D Printing, Visualization, and Immersive Display project is studying how to represent, display, and present biomedical information that is inherently more than two-dimensional, in order to maximize user understanding and retention of the underlying knowledge. Such biomedical information includes three-dimensional data, tactile information, and information best represented in a Cartesian coordinate system. Current investigations are using layered manufacturing systems, stereo projection displays, and advanced computer graphics and animation programming techniques to advance 3D visual communication. This project is an extension of informatics beyond the collection and indexing of information.
