3D model of real object can be generated using many different algorithms. The paper presents the method of creating the model with input images of real model, base model and expert knowledge. Input images represent real object and can be taken from variety of sources (MRI, CT, X-ray images). Base model is 3D model that presents the common shape of model that is generated. Expert knowledge more precisely defines the properties of generated model. Model is visualised using VTK library and OpenGL. The method cannot replace the model, generated from series of CT images. It represents the possibility of faster and cost effective representation of a real patient before any surgery or decision takes place.

Keywords: model generation, surface generation, X-ray images, bones, VTK library
