Hello,

There is a simple CAD model of 3D space (just a number of lego boxes located in the space). The model is developed in SolidWorks. The question is if I can convert this CAD model to Matlab data structure in some Mathworks-predefined way and apply DelaunayTri function to the model?

Thanks.

I found out that I can save the CAD model in STL format and then read it in MATLAB using http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/29906-binary-stl-file-reader.
