## About
### Overview
[iMSTK](https://www.imstk.org/) is a C++ based free & open-source toolkit that aids rapid prototyping of real-time multi-modal surgical simulation scenarios. Surgical simulation scenarios involve algorithms from diverse areas such as haptics, advanced rendering, computational geometry, computational mechanics, virtual reality and parallel computing. iMSTK employs a highly modular and extensible design to enable the use of libraries and codes from these areas in a given application thereby reducing the development time.

## Getting started with iMSTK
### 1. Getting the source code
To be able to contribute back to the iMSTK project, the preferred way is to use [Git] for code version control. You can use the following command in the terminal for Linux/MacOSx, or in [Git Bash] for Windows.

### 3. Building iMSTK
We use [CMake] to configure the project on every platform. See how to run it [HERE](https://cmake.org/runningcmake/).
* ##### On Linux/MacOSx
* ##### On Linux/macOS
Type the following commands from the same location you cloned the code. This will configure the build in a directory adjacent to the source directory. To easily change some configuration variables like `CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE`, use `ccmake` instead of `cmake`.
```sh
mkdir iMSTK-build
