Hello all, I am new to graphics programming. I am about to work on a project that requires producing STL files from images (dental images) and vice versa. Intermediate images will be used for image processing and recognition. STL files will be input to a custom CAD system. I am wondering about three things: 1. how to generate STL files in principle? 2. how to generate one from and image? 3. how to convert such a file to an image? I really would appreciate any help. :D Are BSP Trees are involved in anyway? I have just read about the algorithm, I am not even sure if it is a naive or a crude question! Thank you in advance.
