   I've been using geomview for a while and find it a very valuable tool for
   scientific visualization. I'm applying it to the robotics field. I have a
   lot of OOGL data files which I would like to visualize in a sun
   sparcstation (even in wireframe mode). The objects I'm using are very
   simple geomtric primitives (general polyhedra).  Some time ago I heard that
   there was a version of geomview for X11 in mind. I wonder if you already
   have something running.  

   I wrote a very simple program with a gl emulator which allows me to
   display the objects. However, because the station doesn't have zbuffering
   when I write a set of objects they appear in the order of the pipeline. I
   know that I need to write some tools for hidden surface elimination but
   before I spend time doing that, I'd like to know if you have something that 
   would help me.

   Thanks in advance for any advise that you could give me,

What kind of machine do you have?  The beta version of geomview for
X11 on Suns is now available in our ftp directory: get
pub/software/geomview/geomview-sun.x11-beta.tar.Z from geom.umn.edu.

We also have a binary version for HPs. If you have another kind of
machine, you can request the source and try to compile it yourself.
Here's the relevant section of the the README-beta file:
The source code for X11 Geomview is known to compile and execute on the
following platforms:

  SGI (IRIX 4.0.5)
  Sun 4 (SunOS 4.1.2 with X11R4 and Motif 1.1).
  HP/UX 7.x, 8.x, 9.x.

It is also likely that it will compile on other systems such as:

  DECstation 5000-200 (Ultrix).
  DEC Alpha (OSF/1).
  Dell SVR4
  Sun Solaris 2.x
  SCO Open Desktop
  and others...
