The fast increasing size of datasets in scientific computing, mechanical engineering, or virtual medicine is quickly exceeding the graphics capabilities of modern computers. Toolkits for the large model visualization address this problem by combining efficient geometric techniques, such as occlusion and visibility culling, mesh reduction, and efficient(More)

BACKGROUND Diabetic patients should receive self-management education to improve self-care and quality of life but are frequently unable to attend such programs because of the time commitment. We instituted an intensive 2-hour Diabetes Boot Camp to provide this education in a condensed time frame. The objective was to determine the long-term effect of the(More)
The increasing use of 3D modeling for highly complex mechanical designs has led to a demand for systems that can provide smooth interactivity with 3D models containing millions or even billions of polygons. Di rectModel* is a toolkit for creating technical 3D graphics applications. Its primary objective is to provide the performance necessary for(More)
