Free Add-on: Bioxel Nodes - Blender add-on for scientific volumetric data visualization


Bioxel Nodes is a Blender add-on designed for scientific volumetric data visualization. Leveraging Blender's Geometry Nodes and Cycles render engine, Bioxel Nodes allows for the easy import and detailed, realistic rendering of volumetric data. Unlike previous tools, Bioxel Nodes ensures scientific accuracy and high-quality visuals.

The add-on supports multiple formats including DICOM, BMP, JPEG, PNG, TIFF, Nifti, Nrrd, and HDF5, with more formats like Meta, VTK, and others to be supported soon. Future updates will also include features for generating sections and supporting time sequence volumes.

Ideal for scientists, educators, and 3D artists, Bioxel Nodes transforms complex volumetric data into stunning visualizations. For more information and to download, visit the Bioxel Nodes GitHub repository.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.
