Innovmetric has a suite of programs that you might consider:
-Imview is a program for viewing polygonized models.
-Imconvert is a program that converts between point formats, and can
export section profiles.
These programs are included with the "main" programs, IMalign,
IMmerge and IMedit. These programs handle colour, create and
edit polygonized models.
It certainly is capable of handling large models (100K - 1000K
polygons), and runs on NT and SGI/IRIX platforms.

Prices start at $4,000(US). Hymarc is now an authorized distributor.
