redball.gif (263 bytes) Virtual Reality Viewer. To get the best out of Foilmaker, you must make use of the virtual reality (VRML - Virtual Reality Modelling Language) output feature. Several VRML viewers are available as browser plug-ins. I used to use and recommend CosmoViewer from SGI, which is also free. However, it's been discontinued so I've now switched to Contorta by Parallel Graphics. Google for the latest version or get version 4.2 here.
