to3d gui, etc.

Two questions about to3d:

  1. Is there a way to force the interactive GUI to launch from the command-line? I can’t seem to figure out how to get it to launch and I’d like to play with some of the values during reconstruction.

  2. I’d also like to know if it’s possible to force a slice thickness during reconstruction. I thought it was a to3d or a dimon option, but I don’t see it. All I see is the ability to specify all parameters. But, I’d like most of the parameters to be read from the DICOM header, with the simple change of the slice thickness.

Thanks for your help,

If you leave the -prefix off, then to3d will open the GUI. Other inconsistencies or lack of information can also trigger the GUI. On the commandline, the thickness is determined by the xFOV,yFOV,zFOV or xSLAB,ySLAB,zSLAB options for to3d. You can also change slice thickness in the header with “3drefit -zdel n.nn -keepcen”.
