Biomedical Imaging in 3D

Biomedical Imaging in 3D

An 8-week course on creating 3D renders and images for the biomedical industry
cover image

Create accurate biomedical models

Create accurate biomedical models

This course is designed to teach the basics of 3D modeling and rendering for those with a focus on creating scientific visualizations. The course will cover the essential skills needed to create a scene in any 3D software, and will aim to provide students with a generic workflow for creating 3D models in their preferred software.

After the fundamentals are covered, the course will move on to more advanced topics such as using scientific software and add-ons to import data related to molecules and other scientific subjects. Additionally, students will learn how to create simple simulations using particles to take advantage of procedural modelling (Blender geometry nodes will be the choice to ensure maximum compatibility).

Students will create full 3D scenes about subjects you might find on the cover of a scientific journal. By the end of this course, students will be equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to create compelling 3D scientific visualizations, as well as develop their own personalized workflows for 3D modeling and rendering.

Deadlines each week
No prior knowledge of 3D modelling or scientific software is required, but helpful. However, a basic understanding of computer hardware and software is recommended.
Any 3D modeling software (Maya, 3DS Max, Blender, Houdini)

The more you know, the better.

Establish the goal the student would like to achieve | Introduction to the world of biomedical illustration | Examples of workflow for creating two images (organic and inorganic representations)
Where to find references and their importance in a correct biomedical illustration workflow | Introduction to the most widely-used databases
The student will get acquainted with the most-used scientific software for representing nanoassemblies. We will use Chimera, VESTA, and VMD. (All the software is free / open source.)
This is the core of the course. Now the students should be able to import their models from a specific database, use scientific software for choosing the best representation (both in the case of anatomy or nanomachineries) and import it into the 3D software of their choice. Now we will see how to set up our virtual studio and pose lights.
We will create the materials for our models. How can we simulate materials? Also how can we apply specific materials to selected parts of our models? Also, we will investigate the most-used materials in scientific representation.
This week will be dedicated both to the theory and practice of how to render a scene.
Lessons will present an example of a completed project, from beginning to final render. We will create a small animation representing blood cells inside a vein.
There will be no mandatory lessons this week in order to allow students the time to focus on their final assignments, which will be part of their portfolios. The instructor will be available during the week to help in their assignments, which will be discussed during the final Q&A
