printing geomview pictures
There are several techniques: 1) In the "Save" panel, select SGI snapshot. This will save an RGB image of exactely what is on the screen. Advantages: Easy & quick Disadvantages: May look aliased since the resolution is only the resolution of the screen 2) In the "Save" panel, select RIB snapshot. The .rib file may then be rendered using RenderMan Advantages: Good quality Disadvantages: Needs RenderMan 3) Use pssnap, which is an external module available from the ftp directory. You'll also need the package geomutil, which is also in the ftp directory. pssnap creates PostScript output. Advantages: Good quality. Easy to print out. Disadvantages: Somewhat limited, its major flaws being that it ignores appearances assigned to the object using the Appearance panel and that it does not use true Z buffering and so sometimes results in an incorrect image. Hope this helps. -Celeste Celeste Fowler email: fowler at geom.umn.edu The Geometry Center phone: ((555) 555-5555 1300 South Second Street Minneapolis, MN 55454
