MeshParty

A package to work with meshes, designed around use cases for analyzing neuronal morphology.

documentation https://meshparty.readthedocs.io/


From pypi:

pip install meshparty

We try to keep the pypi version up to date. To install the git version do:

git clone https://github.com/sdorkenw/MeshParty.git
cd MeshParty
pip install . --upgrade

to make optional features of ray tracing and interaction with the PyChunkedGraph work properly you need to install the optional dependencies

conda install pyembree
pip install annotationframeworkclient

Usage example

from mesh_party import trimesh_io

meshmeta = trimesh_io.MeshMeta()
mesh = meshmeta.mesh(path_to_mesh) # mesh gets cached

local_vertices = mesh.get_local_view(n_points, pc_align=True, method="kdtree")

Downloading meshes

Meshes can be downloaded in parallel using

trimesh_io.download_meshes(seg_ids, target_dir, cv_path)

where cv_path points to the cloudvolume bucket. For downloading proofread meshes one needs to specify the mesh_endpoint of the chunkedgraph server:

trimesh_io.download_meshes(seg_ids, target_dir, cv_path, mesh_endpoint="https://...")

Extracting mesh information

The mesh needs to be watertight In order to compute reliable information. To test whether a mesh is watertight, run

mesh.is_watertight

To make a mesh watertight do

mesh.fix_mesh()

Since trimesh_io.Mesh() inherits from trimesh.Trimesh all trimesh functionality is available to mesh, e.g.:

mesh.volume
mesh.area
mesh.center_mass
