CodeKitchen #3: Big-Data Fabrication| June 15, 2016

Using ImageJ to extact 3-D models from image data-sets for 3-D printing

Taught by  Dr. Paul Mignone, Post-Doctoral Fellow, SUTD International Design Center


Current scientific imaging technologies allow us to visualize the morphology of complex composite materials at very fine length scales. Combined with the advances and accessibility of additive manufacturing technologies, researches are able to produce tangible assets of these composite morphologies for further research and analysis. The following workshop will briefly introduce image processing theory, as well as an open source tool chain to produce 3-D models of a material data-set for 3-D printing 


Key Concepts

  • 3D Image Processing
  • "Scan, Clean, Print" 


  1. Fiji (Fiji Is Just ImageJ) 
  2. Autodesk meshmixer
  3. Micro CT Scan Machine
