Given a palette of spacecraft pieces (truss, parabolic dish, cylinder, etc.), the user builds a hierarchical, geometric structure. Each part is attached to the structure with a specified transformation, consisting of a scale, a rotation and a translation.
Crafter uses Geomview to display the spacecraft, giving the user complete control over viewpoint, lighting, and other appearance properties. This also makes it easy to incorporate spacecraft designed with Crafter into other Geomview-based applications.
For more information about Crafter, see the Crafter home page.
