AbFab3D is a library to help develop 3D printing editors and tools.

Building AbFab3D:

We use Apache Ant as the build system.  You can download ant here:

From the main directory type:  ant build

This will build the library.  All external dependencies besides Ant are
checked into the project.  Voxels programs can use a lot of ram so I'd recommend
a 64 bit Java JVM.  If your running with a 32 bit JVM you will likely need to
lower the ram specifications for programs

Running Examples:

AbFab3D contains several example programs that show how to use the codebase.
These examples are loocated in the apps/* directory.  To run an example
go into the directory and type: ant run

Most of the examples generate an binary X3D file to "out.x3db".  Typically I use the standlone brower from the Xj3D project( to view
these files.  To use X3D browsers that don't support the binary format change
the file ending to ".x3dv" 

You can’t perform that action at this time.
