Hi all,

I am a new POVRAY user and I have a question. I am working on Smoothed Particle
Hydrodynamics(SPH) and I need to generate some cool fluid surface from points /
particles. I do not see a direct way of doing that with the existing files from
the latest and previous version of povray. Is there a way to create particle
surface from their positions in SPH by specifying in .pov specification file?

Thanks in advance,
Prashant

  Not really. If the points are placed evenly on a grid, only the height
varying, you could create a heightfield (eg. by creating an image from
your points with an external tool), but if the points are completely
arbitrarily placed, there's no easy way.
