It was used in the brain project, and still runs the dynamic scene generator. See the project web page for more information. Currently the only version of skandha4 that I know runs is the one used by the scene generator on uvula. The main use right now for skandha4 is to convert its legacy 3-D models to VRML, from which they can be imported into more up-to-date 3-D modeling packages.

Most of the models are in /usr/local/data1, especially skandha4models, but currently the ones worth converting are from the cadaver brain (used to create the brain atalses), the thoracic viscera models, and the skull. Others could also be converted with more effort.

In each case we want to create a set of primitive models, each associated with
