Greetings 3D experts!

I've access to a 3D scanner that produces very nice STL files.  I've been
trying to convert this data into a format that I can easily manipulate in
sketchup or solid works.

I was given some hints at a recent meeting including some cool scripts but I
didn't write them down and all I could remember was Meshlab which was good
but not good enough.

The solution we seemed to come up with was slicing the model into smaller
parts, then exporting it slice by slice.  Beyond that I cant remember.

Hope everyone had a nice sunny weekend!
