I am trying to recreat a shape in MATLAB, specificaly, a capsule. I use MATLAB's piecewise function to produce a line that I want, and then I pass that line to the cylinder method of MATLAB. The resultant looks ike this:
And this is exactly the shape I want. However, I need to convert this surf plot with 2-dimensonal data for X,Y and Z into a volume plot, which I can then convert into a mask. I've tried surf2solid, which works but gets me no nearer to my answer, and I've tried polygon2voxel, which fails because when I use the patch function it returns different size vertices and faces. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
