create holes in 3d objects

Is it possible to create a solid box with a hole that goes completely through it and one that goes halfway through it? I have been unable to modifie the internal contours of objects. Is this even possible or do I need to use third party software embedded in my application?

maybe one possibility for the 'hole ' is to fill the z matrix with Nan where you want the "hole" points..

I'm not really sure what you mean. Can you provide an example of it?

More often that not, the 3D images themselves are created in an external environment and then manipulated (rotated, for example) within the 3D Picture Control. I would recommend going this route if you are planning to just view an exisiting image in the 3D Picture Control.
