Dear All;

Thank you very much for your responses to my question with regards to
the MR/CT to solid model translation software. Even though, there
are still some replies to the post, I wanted to go ahead and post a
summary of responses in the form of a table.

I have a few comments:
1- As you can see, a majority of the commercially available packages
do not support any platforms but Windows. This is an issue for those
who are in the computational mechanics field in general. It would be
nice to at least to get a feeling "if these companies are working
towards supporting any other platforms". Specifically, Simpleware,
Mimic, Slice-o-matic.

2- Even though I could not post quoted pricing information here, as
you all guess, some of these packages are relatively costly for
smaller scale research efforts. Even the academic pricing for these
packages are much higher than the cost of most of our computational
and CAD packages.

3- Please feel free to send me your additional comments and/or
corrections.

Again, I appreciate all of your time in responding to my questions.

Thanks.
