sudo apt-get install cvsif you are using Redhat-based GNU/Linux systems (such as Fedora, CentOS etc), you can do this by
sudo yum install cvsIf your operation system is Windows, we recommend you to install TortoiseCVS.
This project's CVS repository can be checked out through anonymous (pserver) CVS with the following instruction set. The module you wish to check out must be specified as the modulename. When prompted for a password for anonymous, simply press the Enter key.
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/iso2mesh login cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/iso2mesh checkout iso2mesh
Only project developers can access the CVS tree via this method. SSH must be installed on your client machine. Substitute modulename and developername with the proper values. Enter your site password when prompted.
export CVS_RSH=ssh cvs -d :ext:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/iso2mesh checkout iso2mesh
GNU Public License (GPL). However, it included a number of external tools (under bin/ directory) to perform certain functionalities by means of pipelines. These external tools are subjected to their upstream licenses and are not necessarily GPL (or GPL compatible). The complete list of these external commands and their author info and licenses can be found from the README page.
Particularly, the 3D meshing tool, tetgen, is licensed under a non-free license: it can be freely used, modified, redistributed only for research and academic purposes, any commercial utility of tetgen requires a permission from its original author. iso2mesh calls tetgen in the background to produce 3D mesh, that means if anyone needs to uses the 3D mesh produced by iso2mesh in a commercial product, you MUST contact the author of tetgen to get permission. Processing binary images and produce surfaces are not subject to this limitation.
In additional to the licenses, if you use this tool in your research, we are greatly appreciated if you can add iso2mesh to your references:

If you used cgalsurf or cgalmesh options in your mesh preparation, you should also acknowledge CGAL publications. If you generated your mesh with the tetgen module in iso2mesh instead of CGAL mesher, you may need to acknowledge tetgen in your publications, you can find more references from this link.
