The BioDigital Human Library contains hundreds of 3D interactive anatomy and health condition models, and this collection is constantly growing!
There are two primary ways to explore this content in the web app:
- Browse the BioDigital Human Library to discover anatomy and health condition models.
- Once you find a model you’re interested in, use the Anatomy Explorer to search and explore a list of the anatomy in the scene.
Accessible via the grid icon in the sidebar, the BioDigital Human Library is the app's central database of 3D interactive anatomy and health condition content.
In the Library, you'll find:
- Anatomy: A full set of male and female gross anatomy, anatomy by systems, regional anatomy, and detailed anatomy.
- Health Conditions: Models of hundreds of health conditions and treatments.
- Community: Models that members of the BioDigital community have customized and shared.
Use the Search bar at the top of your screen to search for a specific anatomy or health condition model, or select a category in the main menu to browse extra-large tiles of your favorite content:
Once you've clicked on a category, you can navigate to other categories using the dropdown menu at the top of the screen:
Once you're in the Library, you can:
- Click on a model's thumbnail to load it in the Human.
- Share or embed a model.
- Click on the "X" in the upper-right corner of your screen to leave the library and return to the Human.
Use the Anatomy Explorer to explore all of the anatomy that makes up your current view. With the Anatomy Explorer, you can turn body systems on and off and drill into deeper levels of detail within each individual system.
To start exploring, click on the Anatomy Explorer button in the sidebar on the left.
When the app first loads, the Male Complete Anatomy loads by default (unless you are in a group, which brings you immediately to My Human). To turn off a body system, click the on/off toggle button to the left of the system name.
To drill deeper into a system, click the arrow next to the toggle button. This will expand the menu, allowing you to explore the regions and objects that make up the system.
You can also use the Anatomy Explorer to search for a specific anatomy object in your current model. Click in the field where it says, Search Current 3D Model.
Now type your search term(s), and any objects or regions in the current model containing your search term(s) will appear below.
