[vtkusers] Examples don't Configure with New Module Structure

It's from: https://lorensen.github.io/VTKExamples/site/Cxx/Medical/TissueLens/

I'm downloading these examples, uncompressing to a folder, entering that folder (which contains the CMakeLists.txt and cxx file) and running: cmake -G "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64" .

I have a VTK_DIR environment variable set to  /lib/cmake/vtk-# for the version of VTK I want to use, as was required when building examples against VTK 8.1.

Where does this example live? WikiExamples? Somewhere else?

There's nothing to put in that directory. Modules are now just plain
CMake targets with their usage requirements attached to them.

What CMake code are you using to find VTK?
