Hi Fred,
I work with the Iowa team on the Slicer FE Meshing module. This module  
provides an easy way to create hexahedral meshes from STL surface  
boundary files.  There is a tutorial on using the module available on  
the Slicer 3.2 training page.  Also, I'll be glad to help with your  
application of our module. Please contact me directly with your usage  
questions. Thanks.

Curtis
