Perlin to mesh

hey i was wondering in the perlin 3d helppatch theres an interesting Figure, but its not a solid, how would you translate the perlin data to a mesh?

so its not just a group of quads.

thank you.

that’s actually a rather tricky problem; it is basically the conversion of a volume to a surface. see wikipedia for an example on how to solve that.

majortom did some related patches on his project page: link.

thanks diki founde xactly what i was looking for, i thouht it was going to be a bit more easy on my Cpu, but itsnot its very very heavy, in comparison to processing
