VolumeCut allows you to cut an image volume along surfaces of arbitrary shape.

Surfaces are defined by interpolation of sets of coordinates (X,Y,Z) provided by the user as a Matlab marix [n x 3].

Features of this app include:
+ Support for input image format: 8-bit 3D TIFF
+ Automatic voxel calibration when images are saved with ImageJ / FIJI
+ Custom offset can be defined for each surface
+ Custom smoothness level of interpolated surface
+ 4 different cut modes allowing to provide up to three cutting surfaces
+ Volume visualization using Matlab's 3D volume renderer
+ Save cut image volumes with black voxels in the cut region
+ Save masks used to cut the image stack
+ Mathematical operations on 3D masks: unite, intersect, exclude, subtract, invert, find edges, fill holes, close
+ Display and manipulate digital skeletons created with ImageJ's Simple Neurite Tracer
