From 3D Printing to VR/AR: Simple Connection?
The same, but different:
My journey in 3D imaging began with 3D Printing as I searched for a way to show the visually complex Diffusion Tensor Imaging data obtained from my research in pediatric kidney transplants. As I began to explore technologies of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) through my work at UCSF and HoloSurg3D, I found that while these technologies have many similarities with 3D printing, there were certain considerations that needed to be made when crossing between these mediums. In this post, I’ll describe those areas and provide some considerations when optimizing images for AR/VR…
