Facial bones segmentation

Hello,
I would like to do an anatomical work on the facial bones.
For that I would like to segment all the bones and to be able to isolate them separately.
I saw the 3F tutorial to make a segmentation with ITKSnap.
Is it possible to do otherwise?

Where can I find how to smooth 3D volumes ?

Thanks

You should be able to segment and separate bones very well using Segment Editor module in latest nightly version of Slicer (4.8 version that you are using is more than a year old, we have made huge improvements since then). See for example this tutorial on segmentation and separation of fused bones:

You can also separate bone parts using Scissors effect, as shown in the craniotomy segmentation recipe.

You can find more segmentation tutorials here on the Slicer wiki and we are happy to help with any specific questions. Post general questions about segmentation to “Support” category.
