We present a system for interactively producing exploded views of
3D architectural environments such as multi-story buildings. These
exploded views allow viewers to simultaneously see the internal
and external structures of such environments. To create an exploded
view we analyze the geometry of the environment to locate individ-
ual stories. We then use clipping planes and multipass rendering to
separately render each story of the environment in exploded form.
Our system operates at the graphics driver level and therefore can be
applied to existing OpenGL applications, such as first-person multi-
