NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     ivview - fast, interactive	3D viewer of Inventor files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     ivview [-hpw]
      [files | < file]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     ivview reads an Inventor file (or files) and provides a simple interface
     to	quickly	view 3D	data. The input	files must be valid Inventor 3D	files
     (versions 1.0 or 2.0).  All the files specified at	the command line are
     read in and rendered.

     ivview presents a single window containing	an Inventor viewer (examiner
     viewer or the walk	viewer)	and a menu bar.

     Note that if you click and	hold the right mouse button, the viewer	pop-up
     capabilities will be displayed.  Also, note that the viewer has a help
     card that provides	detailed instruction on	how to use it.

     The menu bar contains the following menus:

	  This menu presents a file Open button, (reads	an Inventor file and
	  replaces existing object), an	About button, (displays	information
	  about	the program), and a Quit button.

	  This menu includes a High quality transparency toggle	button that
	  turns	the high-quality transparency option on	and off	(high quality
	  uses DELAYED_BLEND transparency, low quality uses SCREEN_DOOR
	  transparency), and an	Edit background	color button that pops up the
	  Inventor Color Editor	to change the background color.

	  This menu includes an	Optimize for speed toggle button that will run
	  the ivfix utility and	a Cull backfaces toggle	button that will
	  insert an SoShapeHints node that will	cause only front-facing
	  polygons to be drawn.	 When checked, both of these options apply to
	  the current scene and	any scenes read	in using the File/Open menu.
	  Note that the	ivfix utility completely restructures the scene,
	  losing any interaction or animation nodes or engines.
