Fill Bad Data

Group (Subgroup)

Processing (Cleanup)


This Filter removes small noise in the data, but keeps larger regions that are possibly Features, e.g., pores or defects. This Filter collects the bad Cells (Feature Id = 0) and erodes them until none remain. However, contiguous groups of bad Cells that have at least as many Cells as the minimum allowed defect size enter by the user will not be eroded.


Name Type Decision
Minimum Allowed Defect Size int32_t The size at which a group of bad Cells are left unfilled as a "defect"
Replace Bad Data bool Whether to replace all data or just Feature Ids
Store Defects as New Phase bool Whether to change the phase of "defects" larger than the minimum allowed size above
