3D image visualization / processing software "Molcer Plus" Functions

"From industrial products to biological specimens, Molcer Plus provides fine view, plenty of methods and comfortable operation."
Molcer Plus is software to view / measure / process various 3-Dimensioned objects.

Import

View

change of rendering type of 3D object drawing
Reconstruct CT-scanned sequential image files to 3D object. 3D object can be rotated and scaled freely. Make polygon of surface and change display, rendering type and color at will. You can show biological specimen by opaque bone and transparent body, by duplicating polygon and adjusting its threshold values.

section and penetrated view of 3D object
You can show cut view of 3D objects by combination of opaque surface polygon, transparent internal voxel and clipping plane. Color of section is also selectable.

Process

voxel process of 3D object
Process sterically to simplify viewing and analyzing inside structure. Noises or unnecessary area can be deleted and appearance can be refined by various mathematical filter.

polygon reduction of 3D object
Generally, CT-scanned data has higher resolution than CAD data so that sometimes too large to be handleable or overqualified for 3D printer. Polygon reduction keeping shape can resolve that. For large scale objects, polygon clipping does. Auto process of cavities or particles will also contribute to 3D printing.

Measure

measure of 3D object
Measure distance and angle of 3D objects like parts, setting base by fitting to plane, sphere, cylinder, derived vertical line, parallel plane and so on. Measure by nonius like operation is also available.

Measure volume / surface area of selected area, surface area of particles or cavities at section.

Export

Processed data can be saved. If data is read by scaling down, changes can be reflected to the original data. Result list can be exported.

convert fossil specimen to 3D data and export model by 3D printer
Surface polygon data can be exported as capable format file for 3D printers. Therefore CT-scanned data will reproduce the original specimen by model.
Image above is modified from the figure 1 and 2 of [Naotomo Kaneko, Hikaru Uno and Tomohiro Iwashita, 2016, Modeling of geological specimen by 3D printer, Bulletin of the Geological Survey of Japan, 67].

Simple motion movie can be exported.

Extra: Particle / Cavity Analysis

cavity analyze of 3D object
Extract and analyze cavities (void) or particles inside 3D objects. Result list and screen correspond. Result can be also saved as polygon data. Useful for detecting defective parts or contamination.

fiber analyze of 3D object
direction analyze of 3D object
Extract and analyze vector component inside 3D objects. Useful for analyzing directive parts or detecting distortion.
