Abstract

Magic lenses are tools which allow changing a work area according to specific selections and properties. This paper describes the work done aimed to extend the concept of magic lenses to allow seeing inside 3D models which are uploaded from an example application. In order to implement the lenses a ray tracing algorithm for image synthesis was used.
