Estimado Dr. Jimenez:

You live in a beautiful city. I would like to see if we can help you with
your project.

Our Wrap product can generate math models. If you can find some VRML
formatted models on the web and convert them to STL using software such as
3D-Studio Max, we can help you.
You can use Wrap from Raindrop Geomagic to generate the math models. Please
contact me directly off line if you wish to get a closer look at Wrap.
Who knows, if you ended up purchasing a license, I may be able to talk our
founder, Herbert Edelsbrunner, into sharing some of his awesome math models
from his topology, algorithm and geometry work

Subject: RV: Examples of STL files of mathematical surfaces

Hello RP News-Readers,

I turn to this news-group with the hope of finding particular STL files.

I'm working in a research project of topological nature and sooner or later
we'll need a solid model of the results. For the moment, in order to
convince the RTD performers for the necessity of using Rapid Prototyping
techniques, I'd like to show them some examples of solid figures of academic
nature: klein bottle, steiner surfaces, and so on.

1) Examples of STL files for these kind of mathematical surfaces
2) Has anybody generated STL with Matlab? What version is needed?
Exported files are good for RP? Any suggestions in this procedure?

Thanks in advance!
