View3D is a program to calculate radiation view factors, as used in radiant heat transfer problems in mechanical engineering, building design, furnace design, etc. Data input is via text file. There are 3D and 2D viewers for checking your input. View factors are output to another file for use with other calculation tools. View factors are also sometimes called "shape factors", "configuration factors", and "form factors".
Release Notes: The 3D and 2D viewers were added. Build scripts using SCons were added. The core calculation engine remains essentially unchanged, other than a bit of refactoring of common code between the 2D and 3D versions.
