This makes me cringe since our first attempt to use CT or MRI data (1990)
was written in such code. Any attempt to slice or view was painful at best
with hours wasted. Small segments of data resulted in massive file we wrote our code to produce .SLI files with an automated
support already in place. Files could be ready in less than 30 minutes and
built in less than 12hours. STL out could be produced for other
applications such as just viewing or input back into CAD.
