Hello,

I am working on a project where I have to investigate the
three-dimensional kinematic behavior of the carpal bones based on Computer Tomography (CT)
images.
A locally-developed software is able to read the CT-Scans and allows the
user basic image processing (threshold, etc.). Further it generates a 3-D
mesh output of CT data (ASCII file) using the ‘Marching Cubes
Algorithm’. The output is a list of real triplets, where each triplet represents
the position of a vertex in CT-Coordinates (XYZ).
A simple mesh display program creates a 3D-Surface model of the
wrist/object, which uses the ASCII file as an input.

In this project there is an interest to import the ASCII file into an
CAD-System like AUTO CAD or SOLID EDGE.

Does anyone know if there is a way to import the ‘text file’
into AUTO CAD or SOLID EDGE and represent it as a 3D-Model ?
Any information is appreciated.

Best regards,

Adnan
