The example programs illustrate various features of Open Inventor and its extensions (MeshViz, VolumeViz, etc.). Source code for these examples, as well as for hundreds of other example programs, can be found in the src directory. The example programs, including the demostration programs, are a valuable source of information and cover almost every significant feature of the Open Inventor SDK. You can use them as a starting point for generating your own applications.

Since Open Inventor V9.1,on Windows all example projects (.vcproj/.sln and .vcxproj/.sln files) are provided ready to be used in the src directory. For other systems, you can generate Makefiles or project files using CMake. Please refer to the Building Examples section for more details.

The executable programs are located in <OIVHOME>/<OIVARCH>/Demos/< Modules > and the source code in <OIVHOME>/src.

Visit the Examples section of the C++ Reference Manual for the list of examples and to see the associated screenshots.
