Reaction: Marching cubes: A high resolution 3D surface construction algorithm

The paper presents an algorithm called marching cubes, that processes 3D medical data and build models. The paper talks about users selecting the desired surface by specifying a density values. This seemed a little vague. The paper further describes the marching cube algorithm. The summary was way more understandable than the mathematical representation. It would have been interesting to read about the recent enhancements or techniques to building models. It would also have helped to compare the model with others of its time.
