Open Source
Contributing to Open InventorTM

We welcome external involvement. SGI has created, maintained and extended Open Inventor for many years - but we think that we can do even better by working together with open source developers.

If you're interested in getting involved in this project we recommend joining the mailing list, looking at the source code, and discussing your interests with other developers on the mailing list.

There are several ways to access the source:

Next, cvs login to the CVS server. The password is cvs.

Finally, checkout the project via

cvs checkout inventor

Note that all of these methods only give read access to the repository. Please email patches to the mailing list for now; as significant contributors come to need direct write access to the repository, we'll set that up on a case-by-case basis.
