Place cursor in image or rendered image to rotate.  Cursor in middle of image rotates on Z-axis, Cursor on side rotates on X-axis and cursor on top/bottom will rotate on Y-Axis.

Use Magn slider to Magnify/Zoom images.

RENDER MODE

Click the Render Mode tab on the main menu and try different modes.

In this case, we are interested in bone, therefore, I would recommend the MAX mode.

Also try the Th(reshold) Low when in Surface mode.

IMAGE SETTINGS

Use the Image Setting tab to change color (Chroma) map of 2D or 3D pictures.

Use Gamma BIAS and POS to “post process” image.

MAGICUT

From Main Menu click MagiCut.

Select desired cut mode and use Right mouse button to trace.

TIP:  It is best to rotate image before cutting so that unwanted structures can be separated from wanted.

 After Post Processing:

This is the typical appearance of Wormian bones.
