VMTK in 3D Slicer

The Vascular Modeling Toolkit (VMTK) is a collection of libraries and tools for 3D reconstruction, geometric analysis, mesh generation and surface data analysis for image-based modeling of blood vessels. It should be very interesting to offer such techniques in 3D Slicer.

This work is done in conjunction with Luca Antiga (Medical Imaging Unit, Bioengineering Department, Mario Negri Institute, Bergamo, Italy).

VMKT in Slicer4

The VMTK integration in 3D Slicer will be transitioned to Slicer4.

Some developer notes:

# clone the fork
git clone

# check the status
git status

# switch to branch superbuild
git checkout superbuild

# include upstream by editing .git/config
# 17 [remote "upstream"]
# 18      url =
# 19       fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/upstream/*

# get the upstream
git fetch upstream

# merge the latest changes to local
git merge upstream/superbuild

# push the latest changes from upstream to fork
git push

Now, somebody forked the repo, made some changes we want in the master:

# add the remote repo
git remote add jcfr

# fetch it
git fetch jcfr

# see diff
git log -p master jcfr/master

# now merge the remote with our master
git merge jcfr/master
