This page is a portal for documentation about Slicer 3. For information for software developers, please go to the Developers page (see link in navigation box to the left).

  • With the distribution of slicer3 there will be a set of bundled modules to get people started. The exact composition of the bundled modules hasn't been finalized, but it will be similar to the current set of modules that are built in. There may be different application-specific bundles that can optionally be loaded. E.g. a registration bundle, an IGT bundle, a diffusion bundle, etc.

Modules on NITRC

Slicer on NITRC

We are using NITRC as a repository for contributed modules. As a general rule, we do not test them ourselves, it is the downloaders job to ensure that they do what they want them to do.

Click here to see a listing of Slicer 3 modules on NITRC.

For NITRC modules the work is still in-progress. Active work (05/2008):

  • Sebastien is working on being able to build modules based on a configuration file.
  • Terry Lorber has created GenerateLM to be used to add Loadable Module support to modules. This allows modules to be detected and loaded at run-time.
  • Terry will continue to convert Modules/* projects to use this functionality Slicer3:Loadable_Modules:Current
  • Once these are done Terry will look at how to download and install new modules from places like NITRC.

Update (10/2008):

Terry is completing a prototype of the download tool that will work in conjunction with binaries hosted by NITRC.

Update (01/2009):

Extension Management Wizard prototype is complete. As of this writing, BubbleMaker can be downloaded and enabled with this tool. Active work:

  • modify program flow to follow UI draft proposal
  • fixup path handling to update library paths
  • allow uninstall of local modules not referenced by the extension server
