Are you trying to just read an .iv file, or would tighter integration
with Inventor be useful? If you have Coin3d or another Inventor
implementation available, I'm working on some code that converts an
Inventor shape into vtkPolyData. It doesn't work on an entire model
unless you flatten it (with ivfix or something similar) beforehand. I
currently have it working with both Coin3d on MacOS X and TGS
Inventor under Windows.
VTK doesn't support directly reading Inventor files, but you could
either import them using the code above or develop your own method to
convert the models.
Hope this helps,
