Extension Description

CurveMaker is a simple scripted module to generate a 3D curve from a fiducial list. Curves between fiducial points are interpolated by vtkSplineFilter. The curve is dynamically updated as the fiducial list is modified (moved/added/deleted). The module is useful to draw lines in 3D space, or visualize tracked catheters.

Use Cases

  • Draw lines in 3D.
  • Visualization of catheters.
CurveMaker GUI and result of 3D curve.
