I have multiple 2d images . I want to plot them into cylindrical coordinate such as each image is plot with a degree increment in circular form to make a 3d circle .
can anyone help me

% Image data
% Create cylinder
[X, Y, Z] = cylinder;
% Mapping the image on the cylinder
figure
h = surface(X, Y, Z);
h.FaceColor = 'texturemap';
h.EdgeColor = 'none';
h.CData = flipud(I);

Good afternoon @Ignacio Alcala,
Sorry for my late response.
Based on the first half of your message, I assumed the expected image looks like the following image.
But the second half of your message might tell a different story.
Could you tell us how the expected output looks like?

Good Morning @Akira Agata,
I thank you for your response. Here a schema of what I ideally want to achieve.
One extra information, every image represents a thickness of 400 µm, is there a way that every image represents this thickness in the 3D rotation plan ?
Please let me know if you have further questions.
I thank you again for all your help and time.
Cordially,
Ignacio Alcala

Hey Ignacio,
Did you ever find a solution on how every image could represent the defined thickness in the 3D rotation plan of two images?
