Neuroscience Project
show user profile  hippoc
Hi guys,

I am a Neurosurgery trainee and presently I am working on aneurysmal clipping and coiling. I have a talk to give on it and want to prepare an animation on clipping of an aneurysm. I have modeled the arteries etc. I want to know how to get the aneurysm to stick on the arteries bifurcation. If anyone is interested in helping me please do let me know. I will also mail the project files to you (which may not be very artistic for a serious student of animation) and may be we can collaborate on further projects.

Thanks and regards,

I'm assuming a bifurcation is something an artery has. And I'm guessing it's where an aneurysm would like to fuck up your shit.

To that end, "wire parameters" and "constraint" are two words you might want to search through the Max documentation for (Press F1).

Thanks a lot for the reply. Can I bother you with a few more questions? Pretty please.. It'll take just a moment. Would be every thankful for the help.
And yeh.. You're right about the bifurcation thing. The problem is I was able to make the arteries into three different objects but animation part isn't happening very good. Can you mail me at I'll mail you the raw files, you can perhaps correct me seeing them.

I’ve done something similar to this in the past but under an NDA so could not really show you it (A new product used to seal it off)
I found the best way to model the internal carotid bifurcation I was working on, was to box model the Y junction and then add aneurysm as an additional piece of box modelling off the gap in the Y, then use a turbo smooth to make it nice a smooth like an artery would be. Then you can animate the simple box models vertices to reduce it in size once sealed.
Would offer to help more but on a deadline at the mo.

@cube thanks a lot for the help. I will certainly try it out. Meanwhile Moid and I have done a small project. Not very great..but I am not able to render it and get an output with the artery having the bitmap material assigned to it. Can you maybe fiddle with it and let me know how to get the output with the assigned material on it.

@Moid can you please take a look too at it. I will mail the files to you too. Here is the link for the raw .max files and the jpg pic for the material.

hi hippo,
these vessels would be modelled by making a box and converting it into an editable poly ,
then path extruding the faces,by a line shape with a path similar to the arterioles.

i ll sent you a feedback in your email,when i do something.
