Is it possible to create a 3D terrain surface from a topography map using Pro/E?

By samuel ximenes on 08 Mar 22:04 2 answers 2543 views 2 comments

I have a topography map with the contour lines representing the different levels of the terrain. I want to make this a surface so I can render it and ultimately use it in a 3d rendering/animation. Can i do this in pro/e ?

    There should be software that does this kind of rendering though I thought that you usually start with a gradient based topography map then use that information to render bezier curves or something.

    Where did you get this topography map? Have you looked at any topography rendering software?

    don't actually have the topo map yet. This is in anticipation of an upcoming project. Don't know yet what format the topo map will be provided (i.e., as a 2d file or 3d file or just a flat image that i have to scan to grab the contours lines.). I only have pro/e and don't want to have to invest in new software if it can be avoided.
