INIVIS has announced that their AC3D software is now at version 7.3 and includes a number of new fixes and additions, including enhanced Tools with hierarchy functionality. It is now easier to manage large hierarchies of objects with the new Duplicate function. This will duplicate an object and any of its children in place.
There is also the new ability to edit an object name, even if the object is deep inside a structure, with the new Edit Name/Data menu function.
There is a new OpenGL Display List Export feature. For graphics developers, there is now an AC3D exporter which generates your 3D models as C code for insertion into a program to be use as an OpenGL display list. This can be found in the menu File > Export > OpenGL Display List.
Additionally, some designers requested the ability for AC3D to display blocky textures (similar to Minecraft), rather than smooth, which is the AC3D default. This is now done by changing the OpenGL MipMapping settings. This is currently an experimental function and is activated by adding a small script into the AC3D scripts folder.
AC3D 7.3 is free if you purchased AC3D after March 2013. To acquire a new license of AC3D you can visit them online at: www.inivis.com
