Viewing 3D objects outside Echoview

Echoview exports the following file formats so that you can view various 3D objects outside Echoview:

VRML world files

Entire scenes and individual 3D objects and can be exported from Echoview as VRML world files (*.WRL) and viewed using a free VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) viewer. This allows colleagues and other interested parties to view your 3D scenes and 3D objects you create even if they do not have Echoview.

Examples of free viewers

  • view3Dscene
  • H3DViewer
  • FreeWRL

Note: Some free viewers may not be compatible with aspects of the exported data e.g. issues with negative axis and textures.

Volume data set files

Volume data set files are created by exporting region inspection data. See About inspecting 3D regions.

This file format is generic and easily supported. The following 3rd party software is known to support this format:

developed by Christof Rezk-Salama
See Viewing region inspection data in OpenQVis

developed by RMR Systems Limited, represented by Roger Rowland and Dr. Rudy Lapeer
