// .NAME CustomSurfaceReconstructionFilter - reconstructs a surface from unorganized points
// .SECTION Description
// CustomSurfaceReconstructionFilter takes a list of points assumed to lie on
// the surface of a solid 3D object. A signed measure of the distance to the
// surface is computed and sampled on a regular grid. The grid can then be
// contoured at zero to extract the surface. The default values for
// neighborhood size and sample spacing should give reasonable results for
// most uses but can be set if desired. This procedure is based on the PhD
// work of Hugues Hoppe:

#ifndef __CustomSurfaceReconstructionFilter_h
#define __CustomSurfaceReconstructionFilter_h

#include "vtkImageAlgorithm.h"

class CustomSurfaceReconstructionFilter : public vtkImageAlgorithm
  void PrintSelf(ostream& os, vtkIndent indent);

  // Description:
  // Construct with NeighborhoodSize=20.
  static CustomSurfaceReconstructionFilter* New();

  // Description: 
  // Specify the number of neighbors each point has, used for estimating the
  // local surface orientation.  The default value of 20 should be OK for
  // most applications, higher values can be specified if the spread of
  // points is uneven. Values as low as 10 may yield adequate results for
  // some surfaces. Higher values cause the algorithm to take longer. Higher
  // values will cause errors on sharp boundaries.

  // Description: 
  // Specify the spacing of the 3D sampling grid. If not set, a
  // reasonable guess will be made.
