  Fast render Turn On / Off  fast 3D visualization algorithm developed for fasted surface animation
 Render Style  User selectable render style : 3D Polygon, 3D Wire or 3D Dots
  Palettes bring Options dialog (same as options button)
  Zoom +  All size 3D Zoom Up (proportional in X,Y and Z directions)
  Zoom Same as above, but Zoom Down
  Z zoom+  Vertical zoom up (Zoom Z, laser beam intensity direction)
  Z zoom - Vertical zoom down (Zoom Z, laser beam intensity direction)


within 2D image
-Calculate Centroid position within 2D laser beam image. Draw the target cross to centroid position and show centroid X and Y position is pixel values at the left side of the main form
-Calculate least square Gaussian fit
to vertical and horizontal laser beam profiles
-Calculate least square 2D ellipse fit
to laser beam image
-Enable / disable User Bucket Mode for intensity read out
-Show / Hide the beam parameter and statistics table

Zoom Effect          
 Z direction Zoom Down. Decrease laser beam intensity proportional to 3D surface height.
 Z direction Zoom Up. Amplify laser beam intensity proportional to 3D surface height.
 All Sizes Zoom Down
All Sizes Zoom Up
