We would hope for support in this project and keep this thread running for development of this.
The first problem we have is, in the screw insertion step, since we plan to let the user to import the dental implant they want and we assume every company will have their screw oriented differently because there is no standard for this. However we want to automatically orient the screw tip to the fiducial placed by the user.
transformScrewTemp = slicer.vtkMRMLLinearTransformNode()
Currently ‘matrix’ was calculated using following static matrix.
matrix.DeepCopy((1, 0, 0, self.coords,
0, 0, 1, self.coords,
0, 1, 0, self.coords,
0, 0, 0, 1))
We’d like to make it dynamic with the axis specified by a given orientation. Can you point us to a reference where we can read about how the matrix coefficients are calculated for a given orientation.
