You will be able to upload 3D specimen files to www.pathobin.com and I'll provide a quick YouTube tutorial video soon, outlining the steps. It's quite fast and simple (from photographs to textured 3D model in about 15 minutes).
This slide scanning robot prototype is designed to universally attach to any standard light microscope. The motor controller is a Raspberry Pi which can connect via wifi to a smartphone for local or remote control. Using the smartphones built in camera, the device can digitise a whole slide image (WSI). The USB inputs on the RPi allow for unique microscope control options - including an Xbox controller :) The motor mount and pulley parts are designed in Blender and OpenSCAD with 3D printing in 1.75mm ABS filament on a Up Plus 2. The entire prototype can be built for around $65 and allows anybody anywhere in the world to digitise microscope slides or remotely control and view microscope slides.
Imported prostate specimen .obj capture to Blender and used cycles render with Glass BSDF for the material. WSI embedded as texture on planes.

Pathobin.com new feature allows you to dynamically create presentations from cases you add via searching the pathobin website - it's great for pathology teaching, tutorial groups or meetings. Just login, go to presentation, add cases to the toolbar and drag-drop them into the windows!
In this video I take you through the steps for image stitching iPhone panos (panoramas) to generate a large two dimensional panorama of a pathology slide for sharing on Pathobin. The same process can be applied to images captured from standard microscope cameras or other means. The iPhone panos are cropped to a rectangle to remove the black border and then stitched with Microsoft ICE (free). You will need a Windows PC (or Windows installed on Bootcamp like me). The resultant large scale image can be uploaded and shared on Pathobin to be viewed through a Google Maps viewer.
You can now capture gigapixel whole slide images using the panorama function on an iPhone and stitching software such as Autopano Giga (Mac) or Microsoft ICE (PC). The resultant image can be uploaded to www.pathobin.com and viewed through our integrated Google Maps zoom viewer with links shared to Facebook and Twitter.
