Top 1: 3D-Modelling Tools Review
- OpenSource Tools such as Blender and Freeware like Milkshape have proven to be hard to use mainly due to their somewhat awkward user interfaces.
- The file conversion tool IVCON has been tested and did not comply with our requirements.
- Alias|Wavefront Maya is our modelling tool of choice, since
- Version 4.0 of Maya Unlimited is already installed at the lab of the chair for computer graphics,
- team members are already experienced with that particular software (Tobias, Mustafa)
- and Maya is capable of exporting VRML2.0 files, for which an OpenInventor importer is freely available.
- Tobias and Mustafa are responsible for creating a 3D model of the foreceps.
Top 2: A.R.T. Marker Discussion
- Two Markers for both parts of the foreceps are required for A.R.T. tracking.
- Oliver will get required parts from the Bruegge software engineering chair.
Top 3: Preliminary Architecture Design
- On Wednesday some of the team members have sketched a preliminary architecture design, subject to discussion during todays meeting.
- Mustafa has created a Visio diagram which is supposed to go into the documentation, once the final architecture is set in stone.
- Tobias gave insights into and by the way refreshed our software engineering knowledge on topics such as the model view controller concept.
Top 4: Visualization Requirements
- Items to be visulized by us are
- the foreceps and
- sensor data delivered by the medical control application
- Sensor data visualization has been discussed in detail. Among the options for this particular visualization were a fixed 2D-monitor in the corner of the user's viewport and a 3D-monitor located close to the model-patient's body, realized as a plane in 3D space. The latter option is favorized.
- Transparency issues considering visualizations beneath the model-patient's skin have been addressed. No finals decisions were made.
Top 5: Other Requirements
- It should be possible to turn single visualizations on and off seperately.
