I am fully aware, that my request is a little bit offtopic. But I am hoping, that some of your knowledge will be transferable to my problem
Sample image and/or code
Background & Analysis goals
I am working with continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastics with a low fiber volume (~33%). Based on the microscopic images I want to retrieve the coordinates of the fibers. I want to feed these coordinates into a CAD program to create a model/accurately model the fibre distribution.
I did find the “Hough Circle Transform” Plugin which is able to detect circles and even outputs the coordinates. But the problem is, that the fibres are not “circular” enough due to the polishing process, because edges are chipped off. While I am currently working on better polishing results, I would like to know if you have any ideas how to “repair” the fibres broken of edges with a software?
So basically a pre-processing step, before “finding the edges” ( Hough Circle Transform - ImageJ)
