Programs that use Geomview for output

SaVi, by Lloyd Wood and Patrick Worfolk, The Geometry Center.
Satellite orbit and constellation visualization program.

The Orrery by Stuart Levy, The Geometry Center
A Geomview module that simulates the Solar System.

Maniview by Charlie Gunn, The Geometry Center
A Geomview module for studying the geometry and topology of 3-manifolds.

A Geomview module that creates mathematical objects and scripts demonstrations.

Surface Evolver by Ken Brakke, The Geometry Center/Susquehanna
Differential geometry software: models surfaces shaped by constraints. Uses Geomview for output.

Qhull by Brad Barber, The Geometry Center
Robust convex hull computation. Uses Geomview for output.

CGAL: Computational Geometry Algorithms Library
CGAL is a very polished library of geometric algorithms.
Bidirectional communication support for Geomview is built in to CGAL.

CATHI System by Andreas Butz, University of Saarbrücken
Animation script generator, output in Geomview or Renderman format.
OOGL models: many large and complex things.

QMG: mesh generation software by Steve Vavasis, Cornell
Can use Geomview for output.
See bottom of example page

Polymake from the Technical University of Berlin
Tool for the algorithmic treatment of polytopes and polyhedra. Can use Geomview for output.

TetraView, an external module by Mauricio Palma Lizana, University of Chile.
See screenshot.

Tessel by Victor Luana, Universidad de Oviedo
Creates crystal and molecular models, parametric surfaces and several forms of sphere tesselations. Can use Geomview (or POV-ray or VRML) for output.
Picture gallery includes a few Geomview cameos.

UMass GANG Geomview modules
Geomview modules by James Lawrence.

Wulffman: An Interactive Crystal Shape Constructor by Andy Roosen et al, NIST
A program for interactively examining the Wulff shapes of crystals with specified symmetries, uses Geomview for output.

Measure: A Polytope Analysis Tool by Andy Roosen, NIST
A program for interactively examining the geometrical properties of polyhedra that are being viewed with Geomview. A user can determine the area of facets, the length of edges, the coordinates of a vertex (or point), and the distance between points.

Antiprism by Adrian Rossiter
A program for modelling polygons. Output uses the OFF format and Antiprism modules for Geomview are available.

DSTool from Cornell
Numerical simulation of dynamical systems, uses Geomview for output in three or higher dimensions.
