Hi Arda,

I've created the files for you, and have placed them in a single 341KB gzipped tarball at:

Here's what's contained in that tarball:

utahtorso-blood.ts.fac  utahtorso-fat.ts.pts    utahtorso-muscle.ts.fac
utahtorso-blood.ts.pts  utahtorso-heart.ts.fac  utahtorso-muscle.ts.pts
utahtorso-bones.ts.fac  utahtorso-heart.ts.pts  utahtorso-skin.ts.fac
utahtorso-bones.ts.pts  utahtorso-lung.ts.fac   utahtorso-skin.ts.pts
utahtorso-fat.ts.fac    utahtorso-lung.ts.pts

Hi David,
This function seems to be a c++ file, or similar in syntax and as far as know, SCIRun does not work on Windows. Then, this function is not useful for me since i am using Windows, is it?
The other problem is that, SCIRun dataset for low-resolution data includes only two *.fld files: one is for heart and the other is for skin. However, i need lung, muscle etc.
Thanks in advance,

Hi Arda,

SCIRun has command-line tools for turning SCIRun data files into plain ASCII format -- they're in the SCIRun/obj/StandAlone/convert/ directory.  The one you should use for converting the surface files (*.ts.fld) is called TriSurfFieldToText.  You should run it with the -noPtsCount -noElementsCount -oneBasedIndexing arguments in order to convert the *.ts.fld files into map3d files.  For example:

% TriSurfFieldToText utahtorso-skin.ts.fld utahtorso-skin.pts utahtorso-skin.fac \
-noPtsCount -noElementsCount -oneBasedIndexing

For my M. Sc. Thesis (Effect of Torso Inhomogeneities to the Body Surface Potential Distribution), I need a low-resolution text-based torso geometry data - including heart, lungs, muscle, skin mesh points and connectivities etc. - for running in map3d? SCI Web site has one dataset (utahtorso-lowres), however, the files are binary. The text version is also high-resolution that it takes days to run!!! I think SCIRun has some modules to convert a binary geometry data into text-based data.
Thanks for help.
