This is a very intelligent tutorial to get reed of all the bone artifacts, especially with bone fractures.

I was annoyed with the script, the "use_keep_above_surface" didn't work, the modification by Revelation Modeler didn't work either (on Blender 2.8 thought).

So I deleted the line and the script worked very nicely.


I had some low filled zones to fill with Meshmixer, but the result was impressive!

This was so incredibly helpful!  I've been struggling with this for months, trying to remesh 3D fossil and artifact scans.

I did have to make a slight change to the script to make it work in Blender 2.8.  Maybe you could note in your instructions that a slight edit is needed for 2.8.

Here is what I changed:


bpy.context.object.modifiers["Shrinkwrap"].use_keep_above_surface = True


-- changed to --


bpy.context.object.modifiers["Shrinkwrap"].wrap_mode = 'ON_SURFACE'

I used the python script text file to shrinkwrap a skin around a foot ct scan.

Much better than running the steps manually so the file was greatly appreciated.

I had a little trouble with the syntax - perhaps some more detail on correctly inputting the target_object would be helpful.

The printed model foot had a few holes in it - so I'm still working on my technique!
