  • Software to curvefit 3D bone surface

    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.
