Hello,
I have geometry files of a sphere which I want to visualize in matlab. The file name is "sphere.geom" or "sphere.dat". Both are the geometry files and I want to visualize them using matlab script in matlab or to convert them using matlab script to .vtk files so they can be visualized in paraview. I am attaching the files with the question as a zip file because of their extension.
Does anyone knows how it can be done or any links/hints?

yes,sir,use direct read and sparse,can get data,may be check it,but how to view the data,may be consider more method.
fid = fopen('./sphere.dat', 'r');
for i = 1 : 6
tline = fgetl(fid);
end
data = [];
while ~feof(fid)
tline = fgetl(fid);
data = [data; str2num(tline)];
end
fclose(fid);
