Welcome to BodyGen developer's
corner. BodyGen is a multi-platform, open source program developed at
the University of Washington that generates three-dimensional models describing
anatomical structures of the human body.
BodyGen models are 3-D polygonal meshes built from
2-D contours segmented from image sets. The images come from the Visible
Human Project as well as databases created through ultrasound and magnetic
resonance imaging (MRI).
BodyGen provides interactive contour segmentation
and tiling as well as automatic mesh generation that allows the user to
integrate one or more anatomical structures (primitives) in a single mesh
file that is compatible with standard 3-D modeling programs.
This site was created with the idea of providing information
for users interested in using and modifying BodyGen source. Please visit
