Would that software be similar to the "shrinkwrap" feature that is available
in Pro/E. It takes and assembly of parts, fills the holes and produces a
triangulated file of the outside surfaces. It may even be an STL file but I
do not know. You can control the detail. However, it's main purpose is to
reduce the amount of memory needed for parts of an assembly you are not
working with. So the best setting still removes allot of detail.

 That having been said, we are actively working on a software solution to
Rapid Protoyping in architecture, and I have made significant progress in
the past 6 months. We hope to announce a robust soulution this year but if
anyone is interested, please contact me off list. I would be interested to
know what sort of market support there would be for this product. We are
also looking for a structure for this solution and my first choice is to do
it as a plug in to an existing CAD program or STL preprocessor.
