VOLUME/ SURFACE FORMATION FROM SET OF 3D POINTS

Subject: VOLUME/ SURFACE FORMATION FROM SET OF 3D POINTS

Hi!

I have a bunch of 3D points. I need to form a closed surface passing through these points. In the end I need to get a volume enclosed by that surface passing through these points. And I need to calculate the volume enclosed and the surface area of this.
Is there any tool in MATLAB which could help me in doing that? Are there any other softwares available that could help me out.

Regards,
Gaurav
