How can I display 3D lines in Voxler?

Create an ASCII Inventor [.IV] file in a text editor. The following example shows three lines with coordinates in the point section. The number of vertices for each line is specified in the
numVertices

section. Extra white space and carriage returns are shown for readability. The

#Inventor

text must be the first characters in the file, without any leading spaces that can occur when you copy and paste the text to a text editor. 

 

For complete technical details about the [.IV] format, refer to the Inventor Mentor web site or publication.

#Inventor V2.1 ascii
    Separator {
        Coordinate3 {
            point [ 
            0 0 0,  
            1 1 1, 
            2 1 1, 
            2 2 1, 
            2 2 2, 
            2 2 3, 
            2 3 2, 
            2 3 3, 
            3 3 3 ]
        }
        LineSet {
            numVertices [ 3, 4, 2 ]
        }
    }

Example Inventor IV file to display three lines.

 

For example, please see attached IV file and VOXB file. A scatterplot was created to show the starting and ending points for the wells, and the IV file was imported to show the white connecting lines.
