I'm attempting to create a 3D object based only on bitmap images. Is there a tool or technique or anything that can help me accomplish this?

Hi,

I just did something yesterday a bit similar that you are trying to do. To edit a 3D terrain I use a bitmap in grey level corresponding to the altitude.

But to do it for all kind of model just with one bitmap, seems to me impossible.
