Convert a triangulated mesh into a voxel volume

| Watch this File

File Information
Description

This function polygon2function will convert a Triangulated Mesh into a Voxel Volume which will contain the discretized mesh.

Discretization of a polygon is done by splitting the polygon in smaller polygons, until the longest edge is smaller than 0.5 voxel, then the voxel beneath the vertice coordinates is set to one.

The function is fast because the main function is implemented in c-code /mex file (takes seconds on a core 2 duo with function compiled by Microsoft Visual Studio 2008.).

Try the example.

Bugs, successes and other comments are welcome!

As Stefan Roth pointed out, there is a problem on UNIX platforms. I had the same problem when trying to compile under ubuntu 11.10. Adding the macros indeed helps.

Great job thanks!

On Mac OS compyling the mex file leads to undefined symbol errors.

Adding the macros helps:

#define min(X,Y) ((X) < (Y) ? (X) : (Y))
#define max(X,Y) ((X) > (Y) ? (X) : (Y))

*leo,
Only integer volume sizes are supported

15 Aug 2011 leo

please check some kind of limitation.

I test a FV data,the data is from real CT images,so the range of object's x,y,z coordinate is about: 140:230 ,90:170, 725:820 , but in your code, I can not set the real range,only use [100 100 100], after test 'none','auto','center'.
only in 'auto', I can see the medical structure in the top left corner, but the structure is scaled down and original details can not be restored.

GREAT

Thanks you for your comment. The code is basic, thus not based on any publications.

Great Job, Exactly what I needed. Is you algorithm based on any publication(s)?
Thanks

Great tool. Just solve my need. Well documented.

I have updated the code today with an new version which outputs a logical volume.

06 May 2010 Siyi Deng

THis is indeed fantastic, however I would suggest to change the output Volume from datatype double to uint8 in c file and eventually to logical in m file; this will save lots of memory and make it faster, especially when volumeSize is large;

Incredible performance! Very good

very helpful. Good job.

Updates
25 May 2009

Added center and resize options

01 Oct 2009

Linux Ubuntu Tested

12 Feb 2010

Small Bug fixed, for the case if all vertices are outside the volume. Only not draw the face if they are outside at the same side of the volume.

27 May 2010

Changed output to Logicals instead of Double datatype

12 Nov 2010

Now first index volume is 1,1,1 instead of 0,0,0, and YXZ dimensions as in Matlab convention (Thanks Yuanming SUO).

19 Dec 2011

Added boundary options

26 Jun 2012

Function now also working without compiling c-code
