scikit-surgery-sphere-fitting is part of the SNAPPY software project, developed at the Wellcome EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences, part of University College London (UCL).
scikit-surgery-sphere-fitting supports Python 3.6.
scikit-surgery-sphere-fitting fits a sphere to a set of 3D points. It includes a user interface that will read data from a vtk polydata file create an output polydata file showing the fitted sphere. Example usage:
python sksurgeryspherefitting.py polydata_in.vtp --output polydatata_out.vtp --config conf.json
It was created in part to provide a simple demonstration of algorithm development as part of a program of SNAPPY Tutorials, but also provides a useful service should you want to fit a sphere to some data.
