    in this paper aims we present tolls for medical imaging application to do skin and skull segmentation in a short time. the desired output for skin segmentation is a 3D visualization of the facial skin without any cavities or holes inside the head, while skull segmentation aims to create a 3D visualization of the skull bones. the algorithm used for skin segmentation is thresholding the image, extracting the largest connected component. afterwards, mesh generation is done to produce the 3D objects from the processed images. this mesh generation process is done using the marching cubes algorithm. the testing results show that the skin and skull segmentation process will work well when there are no other objects that are connected to the skin or the skull. skin segmentation process takes a significant amount of time, primarily caused by the holefilling process.
