The premier program for making pictures in this collection is the hidden line program. However, for many simple applications, it is simpler and faster to make views of the configuration in plan view, side view and rear or front view. Even though hidden lines are shown, they are not usually as confusing as they are in isometric views. [Click on an image below to see a 640x480 image]

This simple program takes a configuration in LaWGS format and produces several output files that may be used to visualize your vehicle. The files plan.gnu, side.gnu, and rear.gnu are formatted to be displayed with gnuplot or any other plotting package.
