Algosim documentation: scene


Sets the current scene.



scene(S) sets the current scene to the one named S; if there is no scene named S, a new scene with this name is created.

All subsequent 3D visualization operations will take place in this scene.

A reference to the scene is returned.

scene() instructs the front-end to put each new 3D object in its own, newly created, and temporary scene. It is not possible to add other objects to this scene later on.

A named scene can be displayed either docked in the main IDE window or floating in its own window. By right-clicking the scene, you can detach a docked scene or dock a detached scene:

Image 1

Image 2

Closing the scene viewer will not destroy the scene, but only hide the window; it can later be reopened using the Window manager or, in the case of a named scene, the scene function.

To discard a scene (and regain computer memory), close the window while the Shift key is depressed. (For instance, hold down the Shift key and click the cross titlebar button.)
