Download Open Inventor demos.

The Open Inventor downloadable demos are a set of programs showcasing the features of Open Inventor for various kinds of applications. Source files and project files are provided for all the demos and serve as example code for implementing these features in your own application. The demo programs are bundled with the Open Inventor SDK installer download (there is currently no separate download for demo programs).

Pre-built executables are provided and you do not need a development environment (compiler, etc) to run the demos.  If you are a medical or life science developer you will find the interactive Medical Demo Launcher in the root directory after running the SDK installer. You will find a Demo Launcher for all the other Open Inventor demos in the $OIVARCH-Release/bin directory.  It is called ‘IvBrowser.exe’.

Note: Running the demos does require an Open Inventor license key. You will receive a temporary evaluation key after you complete the free trial request form.

The User’s Guide and API documentation for Open Inventor can be viewed on our Developer Zone.
