3D MODEL AND ANIMATION
OF A POLYCYSTIC KIDNEY
ANNA SIEBEN // VISUALISING MEDICINE
This project was part of an assignment for MSc Medical Art. The aim of the project was to visualise a polycystic kidney (the growth of numeral cysts in a kidney) by creating a 3D model and making an animation of it, to illustrate its morphology.
3D interactive modelling
The short explanatory animation of a polycystic kidney.
Zbrush was used for both the modelling and the texturing of the polycystic kidney. The shape and textures of the model were based on photographs of polycystic kidneys. The model was then exported to a program called Keyshot and a turntable animation was made. This was rendered and imported in After Effects, where the final alterations were made and the file was rendered again. In addition to the animation, the polycystic kidney was uploaded in Sketchfab and annotated, making it possible to view it interactively online.
