Conversion routines to take a surface and convert this into a solid.

File Information
Description

Conversion routines to take a surface (a function z of (x,y) or (theta,r)) and convert this into a solid; much as meshz does, but a little more useful for outputting as an STL for frabrication in a 3D printer. There are two cases, one in Cartesian co-ordinates, and the other in polar co-ordinates. Plus two sets of examples to show how they are used.

Acknowledgements

Surf2stl inspired this file.

MATLAB release MATLAB 7.5 (R2007b)
Other requirements surf2stl if you want to print out solids.

Faraz,
If you create folders called "Plots" and "STL" then the error will go away. The error is due to matlab not finding those folders on your computer.

I have tried, even after downloading surf2stl, but gets the following message

??? Error using ==> print at 364
Cannot create output file 'Plots\surf2solid_polar_ex.png'

Error in ==> surf2solid_polar_ex at 23
print('-dpng', 'Plots/surf2solid_polar_ex.png');
