After generating a surface via " vtkMarchingCube " from 3d volume file, I would like to write binary format output files ( point.bin and index.bin), which mean, instead of using " vtkPolyDataWriter " to generate “*.vtk” file.
I appreciate your help.
I don’t think VTK can write meshes in .bin file format (I’ve never even heard of this bin file format before). You can save in various other file formats (stl, ply, obj, …) instead, which most software should be able to read. If you really need these bin files then you should be able to find free mesh converter software that can generate those from stl/ply/obj.
Thank you for your fast reply.
Yes, the *.bin isn’t for mesh file format.
As I mentioned, I’m looking for a way, to use the surface generated by vtkMarchingCubes, in order to get binary files represents the mesh, but others then vtk format.
which means instead of getting vtk
Thank you again
Would you like to save a surface mesh or a binary labelmap? In what file format?
In fact, I would like to extract point and index from surface mesh, in binary files.
so, I will not be involved with vtk writers
Thank you @lassoan
stl, ply, obj, vtk, vtp files all store point positions and point indexes (for defining cells), so you should be able to use any of these file formats. What software do you use for further processing of this exported data?
For the software, I didn’t yet achieve this step.
but for vtk files, I use Paraview.
ParaView can load stl, ply, obj, vtk, vtp files, so you can choose any of these formats and you’ll be able to use it in ParaView.
Thank you @lassoan for your reply
