Is Blender Capable of .... ?

Post by Jehoshephat »

Suppose:
I have a program that generates data to describe the surface of a complex shape.

Questions:
Can I import data to Blender to render the shape?

Can I rewrite the program in Blender so that it renders the shape at user-defined intervals?

If YES to either of the above questions: Detailed responses would be greatly appreciated and might have profound scientific impact.

Yes, Blender can do it, but you need to do a program in Python.

Go to blenderartists.org (the user forum) and do a search about "point cloud" or something similar.
