Hi Everyone:

Thanks to all for the response to my question on VTK and MFC Application. 
Special thanks to Agris.  I could get the VTK window into the MFC 

I have another question.  We have data that are ellipses in x,y dimension in 
different z-axis.  We want to plot them in the 3-D view and also create 3-D 

Can someone please tell me how to get the data to be read in VTK to generate 
the 3-D volume.  These points can go upto as high as 1000 points in each 

The closest example that I have seen is Chapter 5 (5.2 Visualizing Polygon 
Data: Manually Create vtkPolyData page 101).  However, I cannot create 
scalar values at those points manually as I do not know the size of the 
polygon ahead of time and they can be a large number.

Thanks for all the help.
