	You can first have a look at:

How to handle large data sets in VTK:

If this still doesn't solve your problem you can try applying a 
vtkImageGaussian to turn your binary volume in a grayscale one. Thus 
vtkContourFilter will work in a better way.

(I'll also recommend using vtkStripper and/or vtkLODActor)
