Microglia 3D Rendering

Using Blender 2.8
to visualize microglia morphology


EXPLORING THE SPACE!
Blender is an open-source 3D content creation suite, and it is free of charge! At first, the GUI and general handling can be a bit intimidating, and the learning curve is quite steep, but the performance is simply impressive. Using a Cx3cr1-gfp reporter system, I visualized microglia within 200 μm brain slices trying to capture their entire dendrite morphology. Iso-surfaces were created in IMARIS, exported as .wrl, imported into blender, custom-texturized, and rendered. Hover over images to zoom.

What color do microglia actually have?
