7. Shapes

Shape nodes are the objects that can be made visible in a scene when you view it. Particular classes of shape nodes generate particular shapes of objects in the scene. Each class has its own collection of fields whose values modify the appearance of a shape.

7.1 Shape Classes

These are just a few of the shapes available in Open Inventor, showing their fields and the respective default values. Remember that in your scene descriptions you don't have to bother including all the fields for a node, just the fields that you want to have something other than their default value.
