Title says it all. It would be useful to have a square brush along with the current circular selector. Thanks!

Do you have a specific use case? For what kind of segmentation task would you use a square brush?

Hello,

I am just used to using alpha brushes like that in tools like 3D coat. For the specific use case here though it's for CT segmentation of CT scans of mechanic components/assemblies which 3D slicer is quite good at.

As another aside. Another really cool feature for brush would be a behavior like draw has where after you have drawn it waits for the enter key to apply (and the x key will remove backwards the circles (or hopefully someday squares) that were applied). Would be way faster than waiting for it to apply and then hitting undo.

Anyways, let me know if I can provide better use cases but this would benefit just about every segmentation we do.

Would you switch between intermediate/delayed apply during a segmentation or it is more like a user preference that would not change frequently?
