you didn't read my email properly. there are not 3 values per point, but
*one* value per grid point, representing whatever property that you have
computed at the location of that grid point or representing the voxel. as i
already mentioned, the fact that you have 3 numbers per line has *NO*
significance at all. count the number of lines/points and compare to the
number of grid points that you *should* have as indicated in the header of
the dx file. it will only work, if you have one data element per grid
point. the dx format makes no distinction between a blank and a newline.

such grid maps are usually visualized as isosurfaces or colormaps
projected on a cut plane through the volume.
