Help on Live Sectioning- batch processing script.
I am an medical student with little knowledge of C++ & 0 knowledge of 3d softwares . So experts & gurus please bear with me
I need to know how to:-
convert STL file (or any other 3d format suited for this purpose) into a
series of cross-section images, as in the case of live-sectioning, using scripting/programming.
To better understand my needs, take a look at this image .
Let us assume a vector V, perpendicular to which is the sectioning plane we need.
"v_co-ordinate" is the z co-ordinate of tail of V vector, origin by default
"v_angle" is angle of V from xy plane, 90 degree by default
"v_magnitude" is the distance along V vector at which the section plane must be plotted/obtained/read
I need guidance for writing something like this-
The output image should look something like this .
but it is extremely important that user can define orientation of sectioning plane.
I researched a little more & learned ways to automate live sectioning in CATIA, but I need to
do it via script for implementation purposes.
I am open to any programming language & any 3d software for getting this done.
