# What to choose to build 3D objects and measurement of distances to cross planes "rays"?

Hello.
It is necessary to solve the following problem:
1. To construct a three-dimensional model of a simple object (to start);
2. To each basic structural element of the model (polygon) to direct the beam at the N-th number of angles and "pierce" beam model through
3. Write the coordinates of the angle of approach of the beam and the points of intersection of the beam with the inner and outer surfaces of an object to the table.

Please suggest solutions and software that will help in this.

In fact, I started with sketchup, a simple, free, feature-rich, your task is solved by simply 'stroking' the mouse of key points (allows you to continue to beam at him)
If we simulate the passage of the beam through the polygon at 180 angles, and the model has 2 000 000 polygons, then "stroking the mouse key points" will be very difficult to solve this problem. - Abbey.Satterfield commented on June 7th 19 at 14:35
2kk polygons already not simple ;)

ie in your case, you need automation, almost all the packages in a 3d simulation have the ability for scripting, you will have to write an application that works with your model. - jaunita commented on June 7th 19 at 14:38
Yes, sorry that I forgot how to put the initial question.
Is it possible in 3ds Max? That is, will the 3ds Max script that generates me a table, which includes:
Original data:
Column 1 - the angle of the beam to the X-axis
Column 2 - the angle of the beam to the axis At
Calculated data:
Column 3 - the coordinates of the intersected surfaces in the following format:
{X1, Y1, Z1, X2, Y2, Z2}; {X3, Y3, Z3, X4, Y4, Z4};... {X(N-1), Y(N-1), Z(N-1) - XN, YN, ZN};

Due to the fact that all planes have non-zero thickness, the output will always be an even number of points is obtained.

The aim is based on the data model to paint such a likeness, but not so simplistic, and for each view:

Can you bring to this issue? How to obtain a radar image of the model object? - Abbey.Satterfield commented on June 7th 19 at 14:41
in 3ds max , maxscript, there is no doubt that your task can be there to implement, but I am with this product did not work. - jaunita commented on June 7th 19 at 14:44
