We propose a new, practical algorithm for constructing the surface of a three-dimensional object from its planar cross-sections. This algorithm deals with a general case where each cross-section of the object is given as a two-dimensional digital image and no topological information about these two adjacent cross-sections is assumed. In particular, it can handle the case where there are several connected components with some holes in each cross-section. The algorithm's principle is derived from the “region growing” technique. which is well-known in two-dimensional image processing. By combining this algorithm with existing shading techniques, we can obtain a realistic image of a three-dimensional object.
