Sure. I am currently working on a portion of a system that will be used
to help automate the process of creating medical models (and to some
extent, surgical implants) through the use of scanning data (CT, MRI) and
RP. Currently, I'm working on the image segmentation module, which
outputs a triangularly tessellated surface model of the object. Since I
don't have my own graphics engine yet, I wrote a function to output STL
(ascii) so I can view it using another program. We're still fine tuning
the requirements of the other modules, though we have some pretty good
ideas (I think).
