Working with section sets The concept of section sets; defining a section set; displaying a section set in 2D and 3D
Working with shapes General shape attributes; loading, modifying, and visualizing vertex-wise data; geometry functions
Working with meshes Mesh functions; editing tools; data operations
Working with volumes Volume functions; visualization; masking
Volume <-> mesh How to transfer data from a volume to a mesh, and vice versa
Volume <-> volume How to transfer data from one volume to another
Setting up a data source server How to install a PostgreSQL or MySQL server; how to specify a driver; how to test a connection
Working with data sources Specifying data connections; JDBC drivers; data table display; SQL queries; data links
Working with tools Zooming; rotating; panning; drawing; editing; selecting
Working with graphs Loading Pajek graphs; displaying in 2D graph mode; creating a 3D shape; loading and displaying vertex data; edge scaling

Working with projects Introduces the concept of projects in mgui; demonstrates how to create and define a project from scratch and from existing data
Working with pipelines Create a pipeline, define processes and process libraries, and execute a pipeline on a set of data; also, how to integrate projects into pipelines
Working with videos Create a video image stack from a 3D model and produce a video with the VirtualDub application

Developer Tutorials

These are developer tutorials demonstrating how to extend the ModelGUI API, for either the purpose of extending the project's functionality, or for your own more specific purposes (e.g., coding model objects).

Source code for the developer tutorials are located in the package mgui.tutorials (not yet, but soon, available). A tutorial session will be implemented in a single class file, which requires the package mgui.command, and particularly extends the class CommandInterpreter to allow simple command-line execution. Details are forthcoming.
