Figure 14
Fig. 14: Interactive 3D viewing window containing 3D reconstructions and associated labels of male and female components of genitalia and other parts of the reproductive system of in copula Melanoplus rotundipennis (male components are colored in maroon (Exterior) and shades of green, purple, and blue; female components are colored in white (Exterior) and shades of yellow, orange, pink, and red). The 3D PDF interface is filled with useful abilities and we welcome exploration, but here is a short guide to getting started quickly (the functionality of this guide depends on your version of Adobe Reader): at the top of the viewing window is a toolbar with shortcuts, of which the most useful is the one that resembles a phylogenetic tree called “Model Tree”. Clicking on this icon opens the Model Tree pane to the left of the viewing window and, from here, you can check/uncheck boxes (clicking on “+” signs reveals full tree) associated with each component (name first, then body region, and then sex) as well as their associated labels (“LABELS-Anatomical_Components”, naming scheme identical to components). These abilities are also present in the viewing window by right-clicking, choosing “Part Options”, and then “Hide”, and this function can be applied to both components and labels. There are also 15 pre-set views (Left Lateral View is Home) that we think you may find interesting and these can be accessed from the “View” dropdown menu of the viewing window toolbar, in a window below the model tree pane, or by right-clicking and choosing “Views”. You may also change lighting schemes by clicking on the lamp icon (CAD Optimized Lights is default) in the viewing window toolbar. Finally, basic movements within the viewing window are as follows: hold down left mouse button to rotate in any direction, scroll middle mouse button to zoom in and out, hold down right mouse button and move mouse forward and back to more quickly zoom in and out (or hold Shift+left mouse button), and hold Ctrl+left mouse button to pan around. More movement abilities can be accessed from the far left arrowed icon of the viewing window toolbar or by right-clicking and looking in “Tools”.
