Project:

Nowadays realistic, physical simulations become more and more important. Their pertinence is not only growing in the automobile industry, but also in a lot of other parts of life.
During the practical course 'virtual medicine' the project IPSA - Inventor Physics Simulation API was founded with the goal to upgrade Open Inventor (Coin3d) using the potentialities of Open Dynamics Engine (ODE) to create realistic, physical 3d-simulations. Now it is possible to generate animations respecting physical attributes such as gravitation, friction etc.
Finally a SpaceCurl has been created to demonstrate these new functions of Open Inventor.
