Resources

If at all possible, it is expected that the students attending the School will use their own PC for the hands-on laboratories. Under each topic there will be (when available) recommendations and suggestions about software and tools that will be used during the lessons and the laboratories. Please try to install them on your PC before the beginning of the School, so that it will be easier (and quicker) to follow the lessons and the laboratories.

Under each topic there will be also copy of the slides used during the lessons, as they become available, and “suggested readings” about the topics presented during the School.

The lecture makes use of the following tools

  • MeshLab, the open source system for processing and editing 3D triangular meshes. It can be downloaded from https://www.meshlab.net/
  • 3DHOP, a viewer framework developed at ISTI. It can run on all the principal Operating Systems (Windows, Mac OS, Linux), working directly inside an updated version of a web browser. It is supported on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Opera and Apple Safari. It can be downloaded from https://3dhop.net/download.php
  • NEXUS, a model converter running on Windows, which can be downloaded from https://3dhop.net/download.php. If you are not a Windows user, you can use the Visual Media Service (see below)
  • Visual Media Service for easy publication and presentation of complex visual media assets. The service allows uploading of visual media files on a server for transforming them into an efficient web format, ready for web-based visualization.
  • A text editor with syntax highlighting, such as Notepad++ or similar. Notepad++ is available here: https://notepad-plus-plus.org/
