Publisher description for VTK Export for Alibre Design
VTK Export for Alibre Design is a Visualization Toolkit (.vtk) file export add-on for Alibre Design®. This add-on gives Alibre Design the ability to export geometric data from Alibre Design to ASCII and Binary VTK files. VTK Export for Alibre Design tessellates solid bodies in a Alibre Design document into a set of triangular meshes. These meshes are then exported to a VTK file as mesh objects. The VTK file can then be imported into a variety of CAD applications. VTK Export for Alibre Design is very easy to use. It adds new commands to Alibre Design. Once installed, it automatically loads itself into Alibre Design and adds a new submenu called "VTKExport" to the Alibre Design menu which contain these newly added commands. The 'VTKExport' submenu consists of the following commands: Export - Export a VTK file Help - Display the VTK Export for Alibre Design help file Register - Register your copy of VTK Export for Alibre Design About - Display the VTK Export for Alibre Design About box The VTK File Format The Visualization ToolKit (VTK) is an open source, freely available software system for 3D computer graphics, image processing, and visualization used by thousands of researchers and developers around the world. VTK consists of a C++ class library, and several interpreted interface layers including Tcl/Tk, Java, and Python. The Toolkit stores geometric data in a file format known as VTK. Very few CAD applications have the ability to read and write VTK files.
