Create a mesh in python script

To get a surface mesh from images, you need to segment them. Segment Editor module in Slicer has many tools for this. See tutorials here.

STL file already contains XYZ coordinates. If you need coordinates in a different file format then you can load the STL, get point positions as a numpy array, and write to file using a short Python script.
