- svlblur.p — This function performs a blur operation on the input array to smooth edges by a controllable amount.
- svlsolve.p — This function calculates the grating phase from the K-function.
- svlcad.p — This function exports a surface mesh as an STL file that can be imported into Blender or other CAD programs.
Note: The above MATLAB programs are protected function files and have a “.p” extension. They work just like “.m” files, but they cannot be opened to view the code inside them.
