Method for Generating Artificial Three Dimensional Images

      Disclosed is a method for creating the perception of a
threedimensional image of a part or assembly of parts prior to
construction.

      A representation of a three-dimensional object can be generated
using a three-dimensional graphics modeller such as CATIA (a
registered trademark of DASSAULT SYSTEMES).  A twodimensional image
of the three-dimensional object can then be printed on a flat piece
of paper.  Using the three-dimensional graphics modeller, the
three-dimensional object can be rotated slightly (one degree) about a
vertical axis.  A second twodimensional image of the
three-dimensional object can then be printed on a flat piece of
paper.  If one two-dimensional image is viewed with one eye and the
second image is viewed with the second eye (using a device such as a
stereoscope), a true threedimensional image can be perceived by the
viewer.
