Converting a surface file to a volume file
 
Hello, I have taken the surface file of a part through CT-scanning technique but the problem is that this model is just a surface and when I try to import it to Gambit for mesh generation, it'll give error. does anybody know how I can convert this surface file to a volume file?

Regards Amir A. Khanlou
