Hi there people.

I'm looking for something that will convert from voxel data to polygon data. I'm a CGI artest rather than a coder, I use Blender, and i'm looking for something that will take a series of png images, slices of a scan of a mouses legsbone if you must know, and convert it into a polygon mesh - say a .3ds .obj file. It looks like your software WILL do this, but ... well ... I don't really know how to compile it and whether it will be able to do this.

Thanks for your help!

PolyVox can indeed convert voxels to a polygon mesh (that is its main purpose) but it is not an all-in-one solution. That is, PolyVox is not an application which you can just run, but is instead a library which a programmer could use to create the application you want.

If you have access to a C++/graphics programmer then he/she could write a program to:

  • Read the images into a PolyVox volume.
  • Run a PolyVox surface extractor.
  • Convert the resulting mesh to the required format.

If you don't have acess to a programmer then you probably can't use PolyVox. There are plenty of other pieces of voxel software out there you could start here but I don't know whether any of them do exactly what you want.
