Hi Sophie,

SureFit should have produced a spec file and it should be in the 
SURFACES directory.  If there is no spec file you will need to create 
one in a text editor.  You might want to look at an existing spec file 
to see how it is formatted.  You should be able to create a spec file 
containing only the closed topology file and the fiducial coordinate 
file and then use open data file for any additional files.  Here is an 
example of a simple spec file:

CLOSEDtopo_file   name-of-closed-topo-file.topo
FIDUCIALcoord_file  name-of-fiducial-coord-file.coord
ELLIPSOIDcoord_file  name-of-ellipsoid-coord-file.coord
