Geomview For Windows?

Hi Mark (are you enjoying the Minn winters?) > I've been using GeomView on an SGI PI--I was wondering if there is a > way to show the *interior* intersection of two or more objects. Is > this possible? What do you mean by the interior intersection? In general, geomview does not do any computations --- just display. In particular, it can't compute intersections. If what you want is something that is already present in your data, however, and you just want a way of making it more visually apparent, there may be a way to do that. I disagree--the data is there, I think it is a matter of hidden line (surface) removal. For example, suppose I had a plane (a square) and a cube. I can easily rotate and intersect these in geomview. However, what I see (for a given intersection) is the cube and the portion of the square outside the cube. What I would like to see is the portion of the square *inside* the cube (with either the cube invisible or as wireframe, which is possible.) (This intersection would either be a rectangle or hexagon depending on the angle of intersection.) Bill said this may already be possible, but wasn't sure how to do it. Is it possible? Thanks, Charlie
