Run the program and open the files in the viewer. You can navigate (pan, zoom, rotate) with mouse buttons and scroll wheel [3 button mouse] , hide and show layers in the layers menu located on the left side of the viewer window. You can print the model in color, or black and white by clicking the “Shaded” button to turn off colors. Also you can print to Adobe pdf, if you have an Adobe printer option on your computer. Some other options are under the tool menu. None of the Edomes have animation applied. There are no preset views except “home” and no perspective view option. Most, if not all are proprtional to 2 x 4 ‘real life size’ domes that we make.; and are models of actual client’s dome designs. Does not contain any spyware, adware or malware.
