What started as some technical discussion about adding a custom operator to the rule engine drools used in my Phd thesis got the developers interested into the work and led to a short use case description on the drools mailing list.
This then got quickly published on the drools blog :
Improving the Naval engineering process using Drools
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.
As of some days ago these changes are incorporated into MView’s CVS repository – thanks Helmut – and will be part of the next release.
