|Program title||Grayscale Model Maker|
Create 3D surface models from grayscale data. This module uses Marching Cubes to create an isosurface at a given threshold. The resulting surface consists of triangles that separate a volume into regions below and above the threshold. The resulting surface can be smoothed and decimated. This module works on continuous data while the module Model Maker works on labeled (or discrete) data.
Use Cases, Examples
This module is especially appropriate for these use cases:
- Use Case 1: when have a continuous data set as input (ie grey scale volume)
Examples of the module in use:
- Example 1: to create a model of the skin or bone from a volume
- Example 2
- Tutorial 1
- Data Set 1
