a depthmap and stereogram generator

What is K3Dcad?

K3Dcad is a program to generate depthmaps and stereograms.
It is used as a 3D CAD (computer aided design) program to design 3 dimensional objects. These objects can be rendered to depthmaps (used as 'solution' for stereograms) and stereograms ('Magic Eye').

How do I use the program

I tried to implement some useful features I found in AutoCAD. So you can draw the objects by commands and/or by mouse. So you can choose your favourite combination of these two methods.
I wrote a brief description of all commands.


The user interface:
There are 4 different views: top, front, left and 3D. The 3D view can show the wire model, the depthmap, the stereogram or any combination of it.
