VolViCon is an advanced application for reconstruction of computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR), ultrasound, and x-rays images. It gives features for exporting 3D surfaces or volume as triangular mesh files for creating physical models using 3D printing technologies. It also provides high-quality visualization, linear and angular measurement tools, and various type of markups. It takes a single raw volume file or a sequence of 2D (i.e., DICOM) files and reconstructs 3D volume (voxels) and mesh (surfaces) models.

Import / Export Features

  • Supported file formats for import and export
  • Import support of well-known volume data, DICOM (including various encodings of JPEG, RLE), and 3D mesh files
  • Export support of well-known volume data as single file and DICOM slices as BMP, PNG, JPEG and TIFF (Convert DICOM to JPG or volume format)
  • Export support of DICOM slices as 3D mesh / surface model (Convert DICOM to mesh format i.e., STL, PLY, VRML, OBJ, IV)
  • Export screenshots (including: BMP, JPG, PNG, TIF)
  • Import and export support for 3D landmarks/markups
  • Support for rendering multiple volumes/DICOM, and meshes
  • Ability to remove overlapped (i.e., DICOM) slices
  • Mesh / surface reconstruction from volume/DICOM
  • Real-time mesh / surface reconstruction/rendering over volume rendering
  • Import and export support for opacity transfer function presets for volume visualization

3D Rendering / Tools

  • Support for creating various types of markups (landmarks/labels/fiducials) that are dynamically synchronized between all views
  • Support for saving all changes such as markups position, color, etc. for later use
  • Interactive clipping planes support for volume visualization
  • Crop volume with an Interactive clipping box
  • Slice manipulation facilities (zoom, pan, rotation, brightness/contrast, etc.)
  • Distance and angle measurement tools.
  • Support of gradient presets with import and export feature
  • Volume transformation (reorientation and translation) and clipping tools
  • Interactive Gizmo Transformation to transform the mesh model with mouse interaction.
  • Share surface/mesh models with Volume and Slice Views to visualize transformation change simultaneously in all views
  • 3D mesh / surface decimation and smoothing
  • High-quality (GPU) volume rendering projection
  • Pre-defined volume rendering presets

Intro with Video

VolViCon takes a single volume file or a sequence of 2D (i.e., DICOM) files and reconstruct the 3D volume (voxels) as well as mesh (surfaces) models. It provides high-quality visualization and various types of Markup tools.

Interactive Transformation

Interactive Gizmo Transformation to transform mesh models with mouse interaction.

Extract Surface in 3 Clicks

reconstruction of 3D surfaces as triangular meshes for creating physical models using 3D printing technologies.

Step 1 - Import Volume or Images 

Import single volume data file or stack of (DICOM) Images

Step 2 - 3D Mesh / Surface Preview 

Go to “Surface Extraction” tab under “Volume” tab and click on “Preview”, the surface will be created and the live preview of the extractable iso-surface will be renderer over the volume (voxels) model.

Step 3 - Extract 3D Mesh / Surface

Adjust or specify the ISO value that controls the output of the extractable mesh / surface. Cropping or clipping using six clip planes can also be adjusted while previewing. Finally, press the “Extract” button.

Step 4 - Export as 3D Mesh File

Reconstructed mesh can be renderer as wireframe or points with flat or phong shading. The mesh can also be decimated or smoothed before exportation.


A new version of VolViCon has been released with lots of new features and improvement.

Loving the additions to the new version of Real3d VolViCon. It's a great, cleanly designed, user-friendly, DICOM imaging program. So easy to use and robust. Please let me know if you want to add features of your requirement or businss collaboration.

"VolViCon is no doubt an elegant software for creating 3D surfaces from Volume data. Various types of Markups are also a nice addition."



Please send me your ideas, bug reports, suggestions! Any feedback would be appreciated.
