Hi Arda,

SCIRun has command-line tools for turning SCIRun data files into plain ASCII format -- they're in the SCIRun/obj/StandAlone/convert/ directory.  The one you should use for converting the surface files (*.ts.fld) is called TriSurfFieldToText.  You should run it with the -noPtsCount -noElementsCount -oneBasedIndexing arguments in order to convert the *.ts.fld files into map3d files.  For example:

% TriSurfFieldToText utahtorso-skin.ts.fld utahtorso-skin.pts utahtorso-skin.fac \
-noPtsCount -noElementsCount -oneBasedIndexing

For my M. Sc. Thesis (Effect of Torso Inhomogeneities to the Body Surface Potential Distribution), I need a low-resolution text-based torso geometry data - including heart, lungs, muscle, skin mesh points and connectivities etc. - for running in map3d? SCI Web site has one dataset (utahtorso-lowres), however, the files are binary. The text version is also high-resolution that it takes days to run!!! I think SCIRun has some modules to convert a binary geometry data into text-based data.
Thanks for help.
