Modifying Objects with Contouring
An object’s shape can be modified using any of the available contouring features.
The sensitivity of the tools depend on various factors (e.g., the zoom factor). Therefore, if an object is meant to be used in subsequent treatment steps, always carefully review that the object has been modified correctly and is suitable for its future intended use.
Available Contouring Features
Modifies the object’s shape in a 3D local neighborhood.
Outlines area of interest (with geometric 3D interpolation).
Removes outlined area from the object (with geometric 3D interpolation).
Outlines area of interest pixel by pixel.
Allows the user to correct structures without any interpolation.
Removes outlined area from the object.
Using Brush 3D
Smart Shaper uses multi-modal information for outlining, while Brush 3D uses geometric 3D interpolation to create a 3D object. This 3D interpolation can be seen in the graphic and is described below:
