Data Format - Inventor

Purpose and General Description

Open Inventor is an object-oriented toolkit for developing interactive, 3D graphics applications. It also defines a standard file format for exchanging 3D data among Open Inventor applications.

The Open Inventor format was originally available only on SGI based machines, but has recently become more available on other platforms due to the work of Template Graphics (TGS) and has become more widely used due to its role as the starting point for VRML (overview of the relationship between Inventor and VRML 1.0).
