[Therion] 3D models

I'm "playing" a little with the possibilities to create 3D models. At
the moment I managed to get the data from a digital elevation model into
an format which can be read and shown by therion. As output I use mainly
the format survex (but also the vrml ouput works). An example file is
at: http://www.student.kuleuven.ac.be/~s0167070/th/model.3d The surface
grid is implemented as simple lines between fixpoints.
Now my questions:
1. I want to achieve that invisible parts are hidden (the surface grid
on the backside of the hill). Is this possible? I would estimate that
this is not possible with the format svx but what about vrml or 3dmf?
2. The overlay of a (half transparant) jpg graphic would also be nice.
3. Can you reccomend a good viewer for vrml and 3dmf? I use at the
moment the cortona vrml plugin for the internetexplorer but I'm not
completely happy with it. I don't have a player for 3dmf at all on my
4. Is it possible to get a 3d model of the cave by lrud data? Up to now
I did not type these into the input files?
Many thanks for any ideas!
