Default Generating a 3D body from a series of surfaces

ehfeinberg is on a distinguished road

I have been looking into modeling a flapping wing from data which gives the deformation of the wing over time (through DIC). It allows me to look at one given time and find the ordered pair (x,y,z) for different points in the wing. I am then looking to generate a 3D model with these points.

So far I have been able to get the points into Fluent DM and have been able to generate the necessary surfaces between them. Example picture a, Example picture b. However, I can not figure out how to turn the series of faces into a 3D body.

Any help would be appreciated.
