Hi Anka,

Please see the Slicer Minute Tutorial for some example uses, available


Also see Part 3 of the Slicer Visualization Tutorial from the same page
for a demonstration of model creation and modification tools 

"Models" are used to represent various 3D structured data - most often
surfaces (ie: organ, bone, cortex, or tumor border). Internally, models
are represented as VTK datatypes specifying various fundamental geometry
such as point clouds, hyperstreamlines, or simple polygon vertices.
There are links to VTK documentation sources on the Slicer.org developer
orientation page.
