QuickDraw 3D SimpleViewer Shows how to set up and use a QuickDraw 3D viewer object. If all you need is to be able to display 3DMF metafiles in your application, this is the place to start. Although this is a limited application in terms of functionality (it is pretty much just the basic five calls needed for the viewer - create, delete, set data, draw and handle event - with the addition of support for cut and paste) it is a complete app, in the sense that it checks that the platform is PPC and uses gestalt to check to see if the viewer shared library is installed.
