    3D Display/Plotter

    HI,
    Does any body know of a software or program that is available which can display 3D surface.
    i.e I will provide the x,y,z co-ordinates through say some flat file and the program/software should display the 3D surface...something like a plotter

    thanks,
    aus

    Do you mean to supply an the outline points for a surface, or do you mean to supply a height map of a surface?

    And in any case, what do you want to do with it once it is displayed?
    If you could read my mind, you'd kill me out of pity!

    Re: 3D Display/Plotter

    I actually want to display the surface.
    The x,y,z will be obtained from my simulation program.

    So through this display I can understand whether or not i am carrying out my simulations correctly or not.

    So as i said earlier I have x,y,z co-ordinates and I want to display the surface.

    Thanks.

    I can't think of any. Did you try to code one?

    Try searching for "surfer" and "contour" at
    google. I recently had the same need...

    Unfortunately, it comes at a price, but
    a demo can be downloaded.

    Re: 3D Display/Plotter

    Are you saving your stuff in a buffer, in a file???

    You are talking about the surface of an object like a an entire 3ds model????

    Or do you want to simply plot a point in space...

    I can help you write one, I just dont know what you need...

    I wrote a program to visualize .obj files...
    I wrote something to read .raw files...
    Both of them are pure coordinates that you are drawing...

    They are all treated the same...
