Bernhard Geiger wrote the software package NUAGES in the mid-1990s for the creation of digital, 3D cross-sections. The web site for his software package is http://www-sop.inria.fr/prisme/logiciel/nuages.html.en. The website has compiled binary files for a variety of platforms. Unfortunately, it does not have them for Macintosh OS X, and the source code does not immediately work on Mac OS X. Because I need to use NUAGES for my thesis and research, I modified the make file and source code of the source distribution found on Geiger's ftp server. I then compiled the source code to create the binaries. As a service to others, I post the files, in Stuffit format, here.
Source Code: http://ajm.pioneeringprojects.org/files/NUAGES_MACOSX_source.sit
1. Edit the Makefile to add the $BIN= path. This path should be the path to wherever the Makefile is. (For example, if you have put all of the files in a folder entitled 'NUAGES' in your home folder, the line should read: $BIN=/Users/username/NUAGES/
2. Type 'make' at the terminal. Everything should compile correctly.
1. Edit the nuages file and change the bin= line so that it points to wherever the nuages file is (e.g. bin=/Users/username/NUAGES/)
2. You will likely need to run the file by typing './nuages' (without the quotes). Simply running './nuages' will give you the syntax for running the program. In my research, where I generate inventor files, I use the following syntax: './nuages filename.cnt -tri filename.iv -iv'
I didn't write the NAUGES program, but if you have any questions about the executables or the source code I have edited, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
