I find that using animation tools such as 3DMAX and other programs like Rhino are very benefical for both 3D computer models and making actual physical models. I use MAX to help smooth contours and increase clarity of NURBS curves that are exported for MIMICS.
When I use these programs I am generally talking about Medical Models or very complex non-linear models which can't be dealt with by the usual methods i.e. CAD.
Do you think that there should be a strong link with these types of programs and RP/Modelling and with such technolgy increasing at a dramatic rate ( We only have to look at animations now a days) it would be better to use that than try and design specific Medical Imaging tools.
What do you all think.
