VTK Examples Baseline Modelling TestExtractLargestIsosurface.png
  • Contributed by: Jinyoung Hwang

This example reads a structured points dataset stored in a .vtk file and constructs a 3D model using vtkMarchingCubes. vtkPolyDataConnectivityFilter is used to extract the largest isosurface.

Data is available at:

1. test.vtk: http://web.kaist.ac.kr/~hjy/test.vtk
2. brainweb.img: http://web.kaist.ac.kr/~hjy/brainweb.img
3. brainweb.hdr: http://web.kaist.ac.kr/~hjy/brainweb.hdr

Second and third datasets can be downloaded from BrainWeb (http://www.bic.mni.mcgill.ca/brainweb/), which is free of charge in use for a research. "test.vtk" was converted from "brainweb.img" using a program by Erik Vidholm (http://www.cb.uu.se/~erik/vtk/rawToVTK.cpp).

The examples expects 2 or 3 argments:

ExtractLargestIsosurface InputFilename Threshold [ExtractLargest]
 if ExtractLargest is omitted or 1, the largest isosurface is extracted
 if ExtractLargest is 0, all of the isosurfaces are extracted

Try

ExtractLargestIsosurface test.vtk 50 1

and compare the results to

ExtractLargestIsosurface test.vtk 50 0

Download and Build ExtractLargestIsosurface

Click here to download ExtractLargestIsosurface. and its CMakeLists.txt file.

Once the tarball ExtractLargestIsosurface.tar has been downloaded and extracted,

cd ExtractLargestIsosurface/build 
  • If VTK is installed:
cmake ..
  • If VTK is not installed but compiled on your system, you will need to specify the path to your VTK build:
cmake -DVTK_DIR:PATH=/home/me/vtk_build ..

Build the project:

make

and run it:

./ExtractLargestIsosurface

WINDOWS USERS PLEASE NOTE: Be sure to add the VTK bin directory to your path. This will resolve the VTK dll's at run time.
