    I have a Visual Basic 6 program that is being used for a project and I am wondering if it is possible to integrate the BRL-CAD into the Visual Basic program.  Does BRL-CAD support OLE?

      Frankly, I don't think it's ever been attempted, but there's nothing inherint that should prevent a linkage to VB from working.  You can build DLLs for BRL-CAD under Studio that would then be used in VB, using something along the lines described at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/106553

      That would at least give you access to the geomtric services, ray tracing library facilities, numerics, etc.  If you give it a try, I'd be interested to hear how it goes.

      Cheers!
