An abstract W3Kit base class for 3D rendering via MinneGraphics (MG). The main subclass methods are renderMinneGraphics and mouseClick:.
MG is a portable front end for Iris GL, X11, Photorealistic Renderman, and Quick Renderman. MG was developed at the Geometry Center as part of its mathematical visualization program, Geomview.
Currently the W3MinneGraphics class supports the Quick Renderman and X11 drivers (how do you get IrisGL to render into a buffer?).
lookAtGeom:withTransform: roughly fills the view with a Geom, while maintaining the original line of sight through the center of the view as a (perhaps non-central) line of sight. Thus, if some part of the object was already visible at the center of picture it will generally still be visible after performing this method.
rotateToFront: peforms a simple rotation turning toward the viewer any vector whose tail is behind the center of the view and whose head is at the mouse hit on screen. The amount of rotation increases up to 90 degrees as the mouse hit nears the edge of the screen. The mouse click is specified in coords making viewport = [-1,1]x[-1,1].
