Hello Slicer Community!
I’m a very new user, I’m interested in using the Model Maker module to generate a 3D mesh for a biomechanical finite element analysis. I have 5 materials and around 100 3D parts and they’re supposed to be sharing interfaces.
I currently have a series of 2D arrays (matlab or python) specifying material/part indexes (one array for each slice). I assume this is what’s called the label map.
Question 1: I’m having trouble figuring out how to import the label map data as I understand that it’s normally produced from the segmentation step (which was already done outside slicer in my case as I already have the label data). I’ve tried to search for the proper file format to import but was not successful.
Bonus Question 2: How would the model maker handle labels that only show up in 1 slice only? Does it ignore or will it throw an error?
Bonus Question 3: If the volumes are in contact how would the model maker handle shared interfaces? I need the mesh to be conforming (interface nodes between materials must be shared)
Thank you very much!
