View Full Version : 3D Display/Plotter
04-12-2002, 02:04 PM
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
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?

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.

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.

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...
