I am confronted with the problem to render 3D representations for objects marked on microscope slices. So I have a set of aligned polygons in parallel planes from tracing the outline of the object in the slices. I want to turn this into a 3d mesh of an approximate surface of the object. The curves can have vastly different point density per curve length and overall number of points.

I know that there is not a unique solution, but I wonder if there is a fast algorithm to find A solution that looks reasonable.

Unfortunately, this also has to be solved in MATLAB. Not expecting MATLAB code of course, I just want to say that use function X in Y, Y not being MATLAB, is not extremely helpful.

  • $\begingroup$ Well, question, have you considering adapting the marching cubes algorithm to your specific use case? $\endgroup$ – Makogan Feb 4 at 16:44
  • $\begingroup$ You can look into the literature on surface reconstruction from slices. $\endgroup$ – user106 Feb 5 at 7:43
  • $\begingroup$ Tanks for the keywords, I will look into that. $\endgroup$ – mcandril Feb 5 at 7:55
