Exporting 3D models

Models can be exported in X3D format, the ISO ratified successor to VRML from

The export function is under the "file" menu of the main window and does not require any Java3D support, so can be used as an alternative to the internal Icing 3d viewer. Once exported, models can be viewed with a range of standard 3d viewers, embedded in web pages, and used to generate high-resolution visualizations.

Only the currently selected channel populations are exported so the morphology file should correspond exactly to what is displayed by Icing. Depending on the size of the model, the export process can generate very large files. These may take some time to write and will cause the interface to freeze in the meantime.

At present, only the most basic form of X3D export is supported, but there are several possible improvements and extensions. If you have cause to use this feature and need more control over what is exported or how the process relates to the rest of Icing, please get in touch.
