Hi all:

A colleague of mine is doing some 3D surface modeling on the bones. We were
wondering if anyone can help us to solve the following problems:

1. We collected 3D information on bony tissue using the Polhemus space
tracker. This gives us x, y and z coordinates, but the points are not
equi-distant. Does anyone know of software that will allow us to display and
plot the data as a surface-plot?
2. The data we collected consists of discrete points. Does anyone know of
software that allows us to do a 3D surface fit?

Any help or pointers in the right direction will be highly appreciated.
