PowerMill from Delcam also does a fine job at producing tool paths from STL
data. Less than a year ago, the company had planned to roll out a product
called PowerMill Express for ~$10K, as I recall, and its main purpose was
to import and work with STL data. I have not heard whether the company
introduced the product. Does anyone know?
