Abstract:

This thesis examines interactive techniques for viewing a 3-D building model in a walkthrough fashion and for placing 3-D piping into a 3-D building model. The focus of research is software implementation using the C programming language and the IRIS Graphics Library on the Silicon Graphics Inc. IRIS Turbo 2400 interactive graphics system. The first part of the research is concerned with drawing, viewing a 3-D building model, and examining interactive techniques required for building walkthrough mechanims. The second part is concerned with the development of techniques necessary to allow the placement of 3-D piping into a 3-D building model using 2-D graphics display and a mouse device. The algorithms and implementation of these techniques are presented.
