I''m not sure you will find a tut on this topic although you could take a look at this: http://www.exaflop.org/docs/marchcubes/ind.html
and for an opengl implementation you could go to Paul Bakers *awesome* site:

I wrote a marching-cubes alg. at one time. Let me see what I can find in my old code. I used it doing volumetric rendering of 3D data sources. Is that going to be helpful? It may take a day or so to round up, as I believe it's on an older computer and will take some searching to find.

It would be very friendly, if you use your sparetime for searching.

I think hopefully, that NeHe post a tutorial some day or is it old school ?

Didn''t have time last night, but will try again tonight.

I wouldn''t say it''s old-school. It''s really something very specific to volumetric data visualization. I''ve used it for viewing satelite and MRI data...so I wouldn''t really look to it for something that you''re doing in real time. It can generate a lot of triangles very quickly.
