My goal is to register 2d/3d vessel networks. The first step I’ve done is to use the VMTK module in slicer to segment out and calculate the radii of each centerline point. This saves as a .vtk file. However, while trying to use VTKPolyDataReader, I receive an error because the .vtk file is made up of binary data instead of ASCII which is one of the caveats.
I downloaded paraview and used it to save my .vtk data as ASCII. However, I’m still unable to view my points as I now see that I’m violating the primary caveat of only reading .vtk files that contain triangle meshes.
Is there some way I can read this data in such as saving the .vtk as a .stl or .obj file?
