NURBS Package Available

It has been suggested a number of times that the ability to "export"
analytic surfaces to a CAD interchange format (IGES, STEP, DXF, etc)
would be valuable.  I have developed a package that enables one to
create and export B-spline curves and surfaces based on user-supplied
control points, data points, or analytic functions.  The idea is that
the user has control over the creation of the B-spline object, and so
the creation of the IGES file and its fidelity in the CAD package is
completely predictable.

It will be located at my website,  It is a
work in progress, so please be kind, and be sure to leave some
constructive comments.

The package was developed in part with assistance from Wolfram
Research staff, as part of their 2008 Advanced Mathematica Summer
