Voxel layer

Choose Layer > Add Layer > Add Voxel Layer... to create a new voxel layer.

The new voxel layer can be selected from the Layers listbox to make it the active layer.

The voxel layer can render DDS volume textures created by Doctor Bix.



This is a screenshots of a voxel layer rendering a DDS texture of a tooth (molar) converted from a DICOM file by Doctor Bix.

Not Clipped

The voxel model is not clipped.

Front Clipping Plane

The position and rotation of the clipping plane can be set with the Position Clipping Plane and Rotation Clipping Plane properties.

Back Clipping Plane

Renders the other side of the clipping plane.

Clipping Plane

This renders the clipping plane itself.
