CT Slice Point Cloud Data to Solid

Question asked by Kenneth Shae on Mar 27, 2015

Hello everybody!


I've got point cloud data which I generated using MATLAB. The point cloud data represents a vertebra. I would like to generate a solid from this information yet up till now I haven't had any success. I wish to then export the solid into ANSYS.


I am using the ScanTo3D add-in to build the point cloud from a text file. I then use the mesh wizard to create a mesh. I have not had much luck with the Surface Wizard since it only creates surfaces on the slices, and does not actually join the slices. Could someone lead me onto an alternative, or perhaps a step through the method? Any help is much appreciated
