Steps we used to convert 2d images in 3d model

1- Photos from DSLR(30-40)
2- Importing in 123d catch and converting in 3d model(eg-".3dp")
3- importing in Autocad and converting in rhino compatible format(eg-".fbx")
4- From rhino converting in ansys compatible format (eg-".stl")


1- Imported Images are surface bodies
2- converting surface bodies in volumetric or solid bodies.

1- Which software is best to convert surface to solid body
2- How do we do it

Note: Other ideas except the above mentioned steps will be helpful
