Hello,

I'm looking for a tool which takes a bunch of images
with cross-sections of an object, vectorizes and
triangulates them to build an object (in pov or dxf or
something). Does anyone know if there's a tool out there
doing this?

The background of this question is that I would like
to convert a large blob object to triangles/vectors to
export it into dxf or something. Or is there a better
way doing this?

Thanks,
Leander

Tga2df3.exe is a simple program to convert TGA images into density files. Then
you could use media. It is not a solid object though. I don't know of a
programme that does what you want.

Do you have Moray?
If yes, you can import your blob and convert it to a mesh2. Then, via 
POV-Ray, you can import that into Poseray and export to dxf.
