Hello there. I recently received a set of mr images and I want to make a 3D model of them. For this reason, I created many floors and put different textures on them.

here is the result =

enter image description here

but this process is not practical. Also, it's really hard to render this model in eevee mode. because this process is very hard on my computer. and there are spaces between images in this process.

That's why I don't like this method. If there is a method you can recommend instead of this method, I would be very happy if you indicate.

Good day to everyone!

I don't know the specific data your MRI machine can generate, but it seems there is a 2015 DICOM plugin working for Blender 2.69+ to bring MRI scanned data into Blender: https://blenderartists.org/t/addon-analyse-dicom-3d-models/641397 Also, just to clarify, so you can mark this answer as positive:

  1. don't concentrate in the entire model as 1 piece. You need to "dissect" each part (and each modeled part): Skull, inner canals, nerves etc.. It's a process. Yes, you will NOT have "back faces for ocular regions, in general all occluded structures will be hollowed" and empty.
  2. Edit (and model / cure / remesh) as you go. I don't know if your requirement needs to present accurate representation of a certain internal cranial structure, but if it's for artistic purposes, I think the above plugin does a great job.
  • $\begingroup$ thanks for your response. but this plugin is not working properly in my blender. Even though I can install the plugin, it doesn't show up on the left side. do you know any solution? also 3D Slicer could not be downloaded. gave an error $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ you need to download a legacy blender (I think this version was 2.69) $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 21, 2021 at 23:25
  • $\begingroup$ Are ".dcm" files required for this plugin to work? $\endgroup$
