SSD rendering is one of the available rendering methods in the LEADTOOLS 3D SDK. It converts the 3D object into a single shaded surface specified by the Medical3DObject.SSD.Threshold property.
Viewing a 3D Mesh using the SSD rendering method
In order to view a 3D Mesh using the SSD rendering method, you must do the following:
Loading and Saving a 3D Mesh
The mesh is saved using the universal mesh format (.X), which is used by other 3D programs.
Sometimes, a 3D mesh which uses the SSD rendering method is too large to be saved in a single file. The toolkit handles these cases by separating the mesh into a smaller parts. For example, if you save a mesh using the name "MyMesh.x", the resulting mesh files will be "MyMesh.x", "MyMesh001.x", "MyMesh002.x", "MyMesh003.x", etc. To load the mesh, use the filename of the first file ("MyMesh.x" in the above example), and the toolkit will automatically load the rest based on their names and numbers.
Once a mesh is loaded, you will not be able to convert it to any other volume type.
Some characteristics of the 3D mesh can be changed using the Medical3DObject.SSD property. These characteristics include:
1) The mesh color using the Medical3DObject.SSD.Color property.
2) The mesh ISO threshold using the Medical3DObject.SSD.Threshold property.
