Support for Shallo-Panel-Meshes in MView

MView is a lighweight viewer for three dimensional models and supports a variety of model formats. OpenGL is used for rendering. Using Qt as UI framework the application is available for Windows, Unix and Mac and is published under the LGPL. For more information, see the project page.

As part of my work at the Chair of Naval Architecture at the University of Rostock support for the mesh format used by the potential flow code Shallo from HSVA was added to MView hence giving our students a flexible and free tool to verify panel meshes.

Example Shallo Mesh

As of some days ago these changes are incorporated into MView’s CVS repository – thanks Helmut – and will be part of the next release.
