Abstract

Open Inventor is an object oriented 3D graphics toolkit written in C++. Because Open Inventor is written in C++, typical user code development consists of a program/compile/debug iteration cycle. This paper introduces Inven Tcl which is an interpretive version of Open Inventor using Tcl/Tk {[}4] and {[}incr Tcl] {[}3]. The advantages of Inven Tcl include: script-able and direct manipulation of 3D objects in an Open Inventor scene, easy prototyping of 3D graphics and animation, and low-bandwidth communication of 3D scenes and animations (using scripts).
