Abstract3D segmentation has become a widely used technique. However, automatic segmentation does not deliver high accuracy in optically dense images and manual segmentation lowers the throughput drastically. Therefore, we present a workflow for 3D segmentation being able to forecast segments based on a user-given ground truth. We provide the possibility to correct wrong forecasts and to repeatedly insert ground truth in the process. Our aim is to combine automated and manual segmentation and
