allowing you to experience the hoof anatomy in a new way
Explore the model in every detail and from any desired angle via axes rotation, horizontal and vertical movements as well as zooming in and out.
Create your own user experience by configuring quality features, background brightness, input sensitivity and many more options in the settings panel.
As in any anatomy atlas, there is an index of all structures found in the model. The index is hierarchically organized and can be used for navigation and the selection of various elements as well.
It's easy to go back to previous views. Hoof Explorer stores a list of recent views, which you can browse via the history buttons just as in any web browser.
We currently support English, German, Spanish, Italian, French, Dutch, Polish and Swedish. The names of anatomical structures can also be displayed in Latin.
Create a snapshot of the current view and save it to your harddrive. A dialog lets you choose to include user interface elements or just the model.
Create a custom view of the model displaying only the structures of interest. Structures can be displayed either fully opaque, transparent or completely hidden.
Using transparency is a powerful tool to display selected structures exclusively preserving the spacial context. You can control the transparency in a dedicated configuration panel.
Looking for any structures in particular? You can use the integrated search function looking for matches in the anatomical names. Use operators AND, OR, and NOT to refine search queries.
Save your favourite views in a slide show. Previously created presentations can played automatically. This is great for teaching and customer dialogues.
Use customized colors to highlight specific anatomical structures found in the model.
As we continue developing Hoof Explorer, frequently adding new features and improvements, the application will automatically check for updates and notify you. Installing updates is just one click.
Use labels to customize Hoof Explorer in order to optimize your learning, research, and presentation material.
Add arrows dynamically to the scene to point to specific structures of the hoof model.
See how different horseshoes affect the hoof's anatomical relations and biophysical properties. Different effects are presented using interactive 3D model animation, model highlighting, videos, and pictures.
To prevent you from getting lost in the details of the model, this features displays a miniature version of the hoof indicating your current viewpoint, position, and viewing angle.
Add your own images to enhance your 3D presentations.
