Visualising Iges files with DRAWEXE

Hugh Sorby's picture

I am trying to visualise some iges files using draw. I am having two problems. First I can't get the surfaces to display, only wireframes and Second DRAWEXE crashes when it tries to process mouse move events.

For the first I am running these commands in DRAWEXE:

pload ALL
NewDocument d XmlXCAF
ReadIges d file.igs
XShow d

For the second, I get this backtrace:

As you can see V3d_View::Viewer is returning an invalid handle. I don't run windows so I can only say this is an issue under Linux.

Help with either of these two issues would be great, many thanks.

Hi Hugh,

This crash is due to a regression introduced in 6.3.0 when DRAW's View3d was migrated to NIS_View. The API in ViewerTest has been re-tailored to it *too much* and did break a compatibility it could have kept given that NIS_View inherits V3d_View.

Here are the patches I have made to get it back to work. File VieweTest.cxx:

static void VwrTst_InitEventMgr(const Handle(V3d_View)& aView,
const Handle(AIS_InteractiveContext)& Ctx)
theEventMgrs.Prepend(new ViewerTest_EventManager(aView, Ctx));


void ViewerTest::ResetEventManager()
VwrTst_InitEventMgr(ViewerTest::CurrentView(), ViewerTest::GetAISContext());


Hope this helps.

Thanks Roman,

That helped me solve issue 2, but issue 1 is still outstanding.

Is there something I am missing here?
