I need to 3D print a hollow model of the aorta and I need to extract the center lines to modify it before 3D printing.
Center line extraction only seems to work in solid models. The empty space inside my hollow model does not “count” as being part of my model, and thus the Extract Centerline tool will mess-up and put the center lines on the perimeter of my model.
How would experienced people solve this? I cannot “fill” my model and then use the “hollow” tool because my MRI images are too low resolution so the “hollow” tool does a very very bad job.
Is there a way for me to keep my hollow model and still apply center line extraction to it somehow?
