right, right. I also forgot that I made a wiki page. I should add stuff.

As far as exporting nifti to STL, Amira does it
(http://www.amira.com/downloads.html) but I'm sure there's a better
way with freer software. Slicer is pretty nice, so if they do it
that's good. Slicer is like, python friendly and stuff.
