The User's Guide is included in the Slicer
Dicer demo download. It is a complete reference on the operation of the
Slicer Dicer application. The first section, "Getting Started," describes the
installation process and presents several tutorials that lead the new user through the
basic operations--opening a data file for viewing, creating slices, blocks and other
display objects, moving them around, color manipulations, etc.--as well as more advanced
operations such as creating animations, working with transparency, and adding annotations.
The "Procedures" section is a comprehensive "how-to" guide
presenting step-by-step instructions to help you accomplish virtually any visualization
The "Reference" section answers all your "what's this" questions.
It describes the various buttons, menu commands, dialogs, etc., in the Slicer Dicer user
interface. Extensive information on "how things work" is also presented here.
Descriptions of data file formats, display-list processing, coordinate systems, color
mapping, and many other technical details are available here when and if you need them.
A separate section of the User's Guide
provides a detailed description of the 3VO viewer. It includes an
introduction, and describes procedures and data visualization elements.
It also has a detailed index.
The guide is
linked to the application, so that Help buttons included in all Slicer Dicer dialogs, as
well as commands in the Help menu and the "What's This" tool will take you
directly to the appropriate help text from any Slicer Dicer context.
