You may then run 3dpalign on that file. It is located on ugcs in ~pinky/bin/3dpalign. If you are interested there is a windows95 version. If you have an opengl driver for your system you can give this one a go. It is located in ~pinky/bin/3dpalign.exe
3dpalign takes one argument, the name of a .3dp file. Run for example:
to align the 4 views of the statue.
Once the program has load you should see 4 windows. The two colored windows at the top are for viewing pairs side by side and selecting point correspondences. The gray windows on the left will show progress you have made with aligning the current view. The lower right hand window is for selecting which views to align.
In each window there are menu options that can be selected by holding down the right mouse button. In the pair viewing windows this will allow you to select if you are adding points, checking point pairs, or deleting points. In the selection window this will allow you to select a view as the red or blue view.
In each of the pair views and in the aligned view window, the left mouse button is used to rotate the viewpoint. Holding down ctrl allows scaling.
In the pair view windows points are selected or added by use of the middle mouse button, or if only two button are available with shift and the left mouse button.
